The Chair was Reggie Nasu and the process was coordinated from the ORHC office by Karen Pike and Cassy Goulart.  The applications were evaluated on participation in ORHC hockey, academics and community involvement.  Oakville has many outstanding student athletes and this is the ORHC's opportunity to acknowledge and reward the best of the best. The awards were presented to the three outstanding young men at the ORHC's Annual General Meeting.

The first scholarship was presented to Anthony de Rango.  Anthony played 11 years for the ORHC, 5 years in house league and 6 years at the rep level. This year, he played in the Juvenile Red division.  His Midget coach, Corey Camilleri, complimented Anthony for his maturity, commitment and dedication. Anthony said that hockey has provided memories, friendships, championships and a trip to California.
