Paul Trainor Memorial Scholarship Winners announced
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the Paul Trainor Memorial Scholarship: Cassie Gallant (Three Oaks Senior High School) and Craig Steadman (Souris Regional School)!
These scholarships are made possible thanks to the family of Paul Trainor, we are truly grateful that Paul’s memory will continue to make a difference in the lives of PEI student athletes. A special thanks to Jean Marie Trainor for her generosity and making this scholarship happen.
Paul Trainor was a graduate of Colonel Gray High School, the University of Prince Edward Island, Saint Mary’s University and the Atlantic Police Academy at Holland College. Paul loved serving as a police officer and was particularly proud of his security work with the United Nations Service in Sierra Leone and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Through Paul’s rich and rewarding life, he developed many exceptional relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. Loyalty, integrity, honour and friendships were his values. Paul was recognized for significant volunteer work, a lifelong passion for soccer, and his newly acquired appreciation for speed skating. Paul left behind a legacy of dedication and commitment to the PEI soccer community.
Both Cassie and Craig have demonstrated leadership skills, support their communities through volunteering, are great student-athletes, and have an outstanding sports attitude. We are very happy to award them with the Paul Trainor Memorial Scholarship!
We would like to thank everyone who applied. The committee were inspired by all the incredible student-athletes we have here on PEI and would like to wish them the best as they move on to post-secondary education.
