|We are extremely pleased to announce that the Ancaster Avalanche Girls Hockey Association Board of Directors has awarded Emily Hannon and Paige McClure the 2016 AAGHA Scholarship Award.|
Through hard work, dedication and community spirit, both on and off the ice, Emily and Paige have proven to be team players that the Ancaster Avalanche Girls Hockey Association is proud to recognize and support as they begin their post-secondary education in Architecture and Health Sciences.
The scholarship award value is $500 each. As the winners of this award, each girl has received a commemorative plaque and a second plaque with their names engraved on it will remain the property of the Ancaster Avalanche Girls Hockey Association.
