The Joan Wright Scholarship was created in October 1986. Joan was involved in establishing the concessions in the arenas and was President of the KMHA Parents Auxiliary. She is recognized for her devotion to concession operations to keep minor hockey fees reasonable. In her memory, a scholarship of $500 has been created. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student (male or female) who best meets the following criteria:
1. Graduates from grade 12 in a Kamloops area high school with above average marks in all subjects.
2. Has played hockey or officiated in KMHA for a minimum of 4 years and has shown good sportsmanship, leadership and character. Preference will be given to applicants who have been actively involved in KMHA for longer than the minimum number of years and up until their graduating year.
3. Plans to attend a recognized BC post-secondary institution (may be delayed one year if the successful candidate decides to postpone going on to college, but after one year is forfeited).
4. Preference will be given to applicants who themselves have volunteered for KMHA in some capacity.
To apply please include the following:
A) A transcript of the student's marks or most recent report card
B) A letter of reference (from a coach, referee in chief, teacher or someone from the community)
C) Personal letter detailing hockey and community participation plus post-secondary plans
