Please see the Ringette Canada announcement below..... Congratulations Dani!
Ottawa, Ontario - August 30, 2017 - Ringette Canada today announced the recipients of the 19th annual Agnes Jacks Scholarship Awards and the 17th annual Cara Brown Ringette Scholarship Awards. Receiving Agnes Jacks Scholarships are Danielle Rosenberg (Cochrane, AB), Haley Scott (Saskatoon, SK), Corbyn Allaby (McLeod Hill, NB), Samantha Wolfe (Bedford, NS) and Katherine Liversidge (Maple Ridge, BC). Receiving Cara Brown Ringette Scholarships are Sarah-Lynne Begin, (Ottawa, ON) and Taylor Gray (Hammonds Plains, NS).
Agnes Jacks, who sadly passed away on April 1, 2005, was the widow of Sam Jacks, who invented the sport of ringette back in 1963 in North Bay, Ontario. While the sport lost Mr. Jacks’ guiding hand through his untimely passing in 1975, the ringette community continued to benefit greatly from Agnes’ dedicated and enthusiastic promotion of the sport, and the ringette community appropriately laid claim to Mrs. Jacks as their very own goodwill ambassador. The Agnes Jacks Scholarship Award is presented to ringette players, coaches and/or officials who have demonstrated a strong academic performance and a commitment to the sport of ringette. Recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship towards post-secondary education and also receive a scholarship award certificate recognizing their achievements.
