Description of donor:

CMLA Brodie Campbell Memorial Scholarship Fund

 

Brodie Osborne-Campbell, a Grade 10 student at Charles Best Secondary School in Coquitlam died very suddenly in April 2007 from a rare and particularly vicious strain of bacterial meningitis. He was the only child of Judith Osborne and Colin Campbell.

Brodie, a big, fit, popular and happy-go-lucky kid with a great sense of humour was 15. He was active in a range of school and community-based sports, including rugby and lacrosse.

In the aftermath of his death, and with the kindness and generosity of family, friends, colleagues, and the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association, the Brodie Osborne-Campbell Memorial Scholarship was established in partnership with the Coquitlam Foundation.

Purpose of Fund:

The Fund provides a scholarship for a second year CMLA Midget player (male or female) who brings to the game of lacrosse the same qualities as Brodie did: Love of the game; Team spirit; Mentoring; Dedication and commitment; and Sportsmanship (including respect for opponents and officials).

Eligibility:

The Brodie Campbell Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually at the CMLA AGM to the second year Midget Player who best exemplifies the qualities and spirit that Brodie brought to the game of lacrosse:

  • Love of the game
  • Team Spirit 
  • Encouragement of younger players 
  • Dedication
  • Sportsmanship

The scholarship is intended to encourage and support recipients as they pursue additional education/training beyond High School. Recipients of the award receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00. (In the event of a tie, recipients share the award equally}.

How to apply for this fund:

Recipients are selected by the CMLA executive officers and coaches. Funds for the scholarship are administered and disbursed under an agreement between the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association and the Coquitlam Foundation.

Recipients of the award are eligible to claim the funds after completion of High School and upon entering a recognized post-secondary education/training program
