Andrews Hockey Growth Scholarship
|Occasion:||Athletic Honours Night|
|Description:||Awarded to a full time student who is a member of a UPEI hockey team and has completed training in an Andrews Hockey Growth Program. Recommendation from Athletics Department.|
|Background:||This scholarship is established by Allan Andrews, UPEI BEd. '75 and Doug Shepherd, RPI BSc., partners in Andrews Hockey Growth Program. Established by Allan in 1979 with Doug joining the partnership in 2005, Andrews Hockey Growth Programs have developed a reputation as one of the finest hockey schools in existence. Graduates such as Brad Richards and Sidney Crosby attribute much of their success to their time as students at Andrews Hockey. Located in the CARI Centre at UPEI, Andrews Hockey "strives to stress the importance of healthy living and personal excellence." Many UPEI Hockey alumni have attended and have benefited from the program's understanding that successful development as a hockey player is the product of complete personal growth. In recognition of their belief in the importance of athletic and personal development, and their desire to make a difference for UPEI students, Allan Andrews and Doug Shepherd have established The Andrews Hockey Growth Scholarship.|
The university traces its roots back to 1804, when Lt. Governor Edmund Fanning and the Legislative Council of Prince Edward Island called for the establishment of Kent College. By 1820, the first Kent College building, known as "the National School", or James Breading's School was erected. Later succeeded by Central Academy, which received a Royal Charter in 1834.
