NEW GLASGOW – Four present and past members of the Weeks Hockey organization were presented with Scott Weeks Bursary Awards prior to the Maritime Hockey League game between the Junior ‘A’ Crushers and Amherst Ramblers on Thursday.
“The purpose of the program is to recognize (players) who have excelled socially, academically and athletically within the communities in which they live and played,” the organization said in a news release.
This year’s recipients are:
Layton Mason (New Glasgow), a former Weeks Major Midget who will graduate from St. Mary’s University next year; Wes Herrett (Springhill), who played for the Major Midgets and now attends Dalhousie University, where he plays for the Dal Tigers’ hockey club; Stephen MacNeil (Little Harbour), an ex-Major Midget who now studies IT at St.FX; and Rory Graham (Canning), a current Junior ‘A’ Crusher who attends St.FX and who participates in local community activities, including Molly’s Rainbow and Sunday night hockey camp.
Since 1995, the program has awarded bursaries to 77 players in the Weeks’ organization.
