Roche earns Schmirler scholarship
Montague’s Brooks Roche is one of six winners of a $5,000 scholarship from the Sandra Schmirler Foundation.
The foundation awards the prizes to junior curlers pursuing competitive curling careers while attending a post-secondary school.
Roche, the Montague High School valedictorian for 2015, is enrolled in the sustainable design engineering program at UPEI. He threw third stones on the Tyler Smith provincial junior championship team last winter. Roche and company represented P.E.I. at the Canadian juniors and the Canada Games in Prince George, B.C.
