Since the school year of 2003-2004, the Chatham Sports Hall of Fame has sponsored a bursary which is given annually to a graduating student in each of Chatham’s four high schools Chatham Christian High School, Chatham-Kent Secondary School, John McGregor Secondary School, and Ursuline College “The Pines”.
The bursary is awarded to a graduating student who has contributed to the betterment of their school’s athletics in a non-playing capacity. The award acknowledges a student who has unselfishly given their time performing one or more of the following duties: coaching, managing, scorekeeping, fundraising, serving on the athletic society, or any other such service to the athletic program.
The bursary winner is chosen by the school’s athletic program leader in consultation with other teachers/coaches.
The bursary is presented at the school’s annual athletic banquet or commencement ceremony.
