The Birchbank Golf Club endorsed a pair of young golfers by awarding them with the Howie Fishwick Memorial scholarship.
Birchbank members Jayden Crandell and Ryan Fullerton were each awarded a $2,500 scholarship to help with tuition. Crandell will be attending the University of Calgary to pursue an engineering degree, while Fullerton also received the scholarship last year and will continue with his engineering studies at the University of British Columbia-Okanagan in Kelowna.
The scholarship fund is managed by the LeRoi Foundation, and thanks to the generosity of Howie Fishwick estate that donated $100,000 on the Rossland-Trail Country Club member’s behalf, it will be a legacy for many years to come
“They are really good students, and great representatives of the qualities we look for in our recipients,” said Birchbank Golf Pro Dennis Bradley.
The scholarship seeks persons demonstrating dedication and drive in pursuing their post-secondary goals. Eligible applicants must be a junior member at the Birchbank golf course and enrolled in a post-secondary institution. In addition, the applicant must write a short essay and answer questions relevant to merit.
Birchbank will also feature Music on the Deck tonight with special guests T&T. Music goes from 6-9 p.m. enjoy a drink or dinner from the Birchbank Bistro.
