Two junior men’s student-athletes from Summerside, and three junior women’s curlers from Cardigan, Crapaud, and New Dominion have been announced as the 2018 winners of PEI Curling Hall of Fame and Museum bursaries. The bursaries, which are provided by an anonymous donor, are awarded annually to PEI residents enrolled in a full-time post-secondary institution, who are eligible to participate in provincial junior playoffs, and who demonstrate a genuine financial need. Other criteria include curling achievements, passion for the sport, and community involvement.
On the junior men’s side, Parker MacFadyen from Summerside, who is attending UNB, received a $1000 bursary, while his brother Alex, a UPEI student, received $500.
A decision was made to split the $1000 junior women’s bursary this time, so there are three $500 recipients — Danielle Collings from Cardigan, and Taya-Ray Crossman from Crapaud, both attending Holland College, and Cornwall Curling Club member Lauren Lenentine from New Dominion, who is attending Dalhousie University.
