Local family sponsors scholarships for youth to play at Borden Golf Club in memory of fallen soldier

66

The Borden Golf club is proud to announce the awarding of three golf scholarships for deserving high school students in the areas of tenacity, academics and athletics, or a combination thereof. The scholarship will allow the recipient to play for the 2022 season at the Borden Golf Club.

These scholarships are sponsored by the Collier family whose work in the community supports youth in sport, helping Simcoe County families. Sapper Brian Collier was born in Toronto and raised in Bradford where he attended Holy Trinity High School before joining the Canadian Forces in 2007. A member of the 1 Combat Engineer Regiment based out of Edmonton, AB, Collier served with the Royal Canadian Regiment while stationed in the Panjwa’i District of Afghanistan. Sapper Collier earned respect after surviving a blast from an explosive device and returning to duty just weeks later. Unfortunately, a second detonation took Sapper Collier’s life, while on foot patrol in Afghanistan. Mrs. Carol Collier, Brian’s mom, is CFB Borden’s Silver Cross Mother.

 Interested high school students, grades 9 – 12 in 2021/22 school year, should e-mail a short description (250 words or less) including:

First and last name
Name of High School
Grade attended in 22/23 school year
