“As a current and past recipient of the Pat Fletcher Scholarship, I am deeply grateful to the Foundation for helping me to achieve my goal of playing golf at a high level while attending university. As a current student at Simon Fraser University, studying, practicing and competing in NCAA golf is demanding and the generous support provided has helped to allow me to focus without working at a part time job through the school year.

Their generous support has alleviated the financial strain that accompanies post-secondary education, allowing me more time to focus on my academic success to obtain my Bachelor of Science and forge ahead towards my Doctor of Optometry.
