John Simmonds Memorial Scholarship 2016 Award

Updated: Sept 8, 2016

The 2016 recipients of the JSM Scholarship for U18 players were Marissa Hansen - U18G Tier 3 Panthers and William (Akio) Loturi – U18B Tier 1 Strikers. Cheques to help further their education were presented at their homes on August 15th and August 22nd. Assisting with the presentations were Carol and Johnny Simmonds who helped share the purpose and intent of this scholarship, to give the Team Officials a chance to reward the player that best exhibited the attributes of sportsmanship, leadership and community spirit. Attending the presentations on behalf of the coaches were Allen Hansen (Head Coach - U18G Panthers), David Chiu (Head Coach – U81B Strikers) and Matt Irons ( Asst Coach - U18B Strikers) whose glowing recommendations made these awards possible.

We thank the Calgary Northside Soccer Executive for sponsoring this award and are pleased to announce that the JSM Scholarship will be continued for at least two more years through the generous donations of John’s family and friends in the soccer community. On behalf of the scholarship committee, CNS Executive and the Simmonds Family, we once again congratulate Marissa and William on being the inaugural winners of this heartfelt award from this excellent community-based soccer organization.
