The Aaron C. Cornwell Memorial Scholarship was founded in memory of Gold in the Net student Aaron Cornwell as he tragically passed away at the age of 17 in 1999. Gold in the Net founder and C.E.O, Perry Elderbroom, was drawn to this particular student as he demonstrated extreme motivation, drive and passion for hockey and his studies. Thus, in 2005 Gold in the Net along with the Cornwell’s decided to introduce the Aaron C. Cornwell Memorial Scholarship Fund, adding yet another important aspect to the Gold in the Net franchise and their students.
Over the past three years 4 Gold in the Net Ontario student/staff members were recipient of the scholarship. Jordan, Camille, Mike and Jay all showed passion toward the sport of hockey; whether teaching it to our students or playing it themselves, hockey was their lives. However, they all also showed an even greater desire for expanding their education in order to prepare for their future. Gold in the Net realizes that education is an important cornerstone to a successful start in life, therefore are proud to give out this scholarship for those seeking higher education.
These students and staff members have been an important part of the Ontario franchise and have exemplified qualities of an ideal Gold in the Net team member as well important members at their schools and in their communities. We are proud to announce these names as Gold in the Net alumni recipients, and wish them the best of luck in their studies and future endeavours. We hope that more Gold in the Net students will follow in their footsteps and pursue post secondary education, as well as share their Gold in the Net experiences while applying for this scholarship.
