1/31: Scholarships Submission Deadline
Annually the CBJ Foundation awards two $10,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors to help with their secondary educations. The John H. McConnell Scholarship is honor of Mr. Mac and his deep-rooted belief in the importance of giving back to the community. The scholarship recognizes a senior who closely personifies the character and leadership that Mr. Mac valued. The second scholarship is the High School Hockey Scholarship that recognizes students that have excelled in their commitment to hockey, in their leadership, and in their academic and extracurricular activities at their respective school. This scholarship is not based on performance as a hockey player, but on character and overall achievements during high school. The applications for both scholarship applications must be submitted by the deadline on Wednesday, January 31, 2019.
