2005 CLEVELAND GOLF CANADA SCHOLARSHIP WINNER ANNOUNCED
|Cleveland Golf Canada and the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) are pleased to announce the MJT Cleveland Golf Canada Scholarship winner for 2005. The award goes to Jesse Skelton, 17, of St. Francois-Xavier, Manitoba. Skelton, who has played on the MJT for the past three years, is not only a talented golfer and current Manitoba Junior Champion but also an accomplished pianist and International Baccalaureate student with outstanding grades. In his words: "Witnessing the rewards that practice and exercise have brought to my golf game helped me academically and musically...... whether it is being able to breathe over a five-foot putt to win a golf tournament, performing a complex piano Sonata in front of hundreds of people in the audience or writing a final International Baccalaureate exam in a strict timeframe, I have learned discipline." Skelton's goals include obtaining a degree from the Faculty of Architecture at a Canadian University so he can go on to design golf courses throughout the world and working on his golf game to become a top amateur in Canada.|
Selected by the Cleveland Golf Canada Scholarship Committee, Skelton will receive a $1,000 R.E.S.P. for future academic expenses. Honourable mentions go to Mark Bania, Kitchener, Ontario and Kurt Woodman, Coquitlam, BC. Previous winners of the award were Ryan Stevenson (Lethbridge, AB) and Todd Hutcheson (Ingersoll, Ontario).
