Scholarship Announcement from UNBC:
Jarod Algra and Erica Kreitz are the first two recipients of the UNBC Northern Sport Leadership Awards.
A fundraising drive by UNBC along with the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club raised money to create two endowed awards.
Algra received a full-tuition award and Kreitz received a $1,000 award.
Both student athletes took part in the 2015 Canada Winter Games, Algra placing fourth in the biathlon relay event with Team BC. Kreitz was an alternate on Team BC's cross-country ski team, a guide for a blind skier in Para-Nordic race and a volunteer.
The successful fundraising appeal means these awards will be offered every year, forever.
