The Compass - - SPORTS -

The Bay Arena Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion in Bay Roberts is now ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the 2014 Wes­ley Gosse Me­mo­rial Schol­ar­ship.

Named in hon­our of the late Wes­ley Gosse, for­mer ed­u­ca­tor, mi­nor hockey coach and mem­ber of the Bay Arena board of di­rec­tors, the schol­ar­ship is awarded to the grad­u­at­ing midget player who best ex­em­pli­fies char­ac­ter, team­work and in­volve­ment in the com­mu­nity.

Gosse, who passed away in 2009, was also a pres­i­dent with Bay Arena mi­nor for 16 years.

The schol­ar­ship award is handed out at the an­nual year-end ban­quet at the Bay Arena and is val­ued at $500.

The award is pre­sented by Bay Arena mi­nor, in con­junc­tion with the Bay Arena As­so­ci­a­tion board of di­rec­tors.

To be el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive the schol­ar­ship, the player must be in Level III, reg­is­tered with Bay Arena mi­nor and be at­tend­ing a post-sec­ondary in­sti­tu­tion in the fall of 2014.

As­pir­ing ap­pli­cants must sub­mit the fol­low­ing: name; ad­dress, tele­phone num­ber and email ad­dress; pro­vide a tran­script of Level III midterm marks; pro­vide a writ­ten rec­om­men­da­tions from a teacher and coach that speak to char­ac­ter and sports­man­ship of the ap­pli­cant; and a list of ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties such as vol­un­teer work.

The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is May 5 and should be sub­mit­ted to the Bay Arena of­fice.
