Swim Nova Scotia Presents 2019 Recipients of the David Fry Memorial Bursary

Amelia Lane from Dalhousie University and Dean Sangster from Acadia University are this year’s female and male recipients of the David Fry Memorial Bursary.

Both swimmers have excelled in and out of the pool; they have worked hard and reached the highest level of achievement in their academic courses while continuing to excel in the pool.

Amelia graduated from Sir John A High School and is presently pursuing her Engineering Degree at Dalhousie University. She swam for the Halifax Trojans last season and the St. Margaret’s Bay Breakers prior to that.  Dean graduated from CEC High School and is pursuing his Bachelor of Sciences at Acadia University. He swam for the Truro Centurions Swim Club for six seasons. Both were members of Swim Nova Scotia’s Next Gen Provincial program last season.

The David Fry Memorial Bursary has been established to remember David, his contributions to competitive swimming in Nova Scotia, and to encourage swimmers toward excellence.  David Fry left an invaluable legacy to amateur sport in Nova Scotia and in Canada, the legacy of his character; character built on commitment, intensity, discipline, effort, and desire.

Each year awards may be made from the Fund to promising, Nova Scotia swimmers to assist them to continue their training, education, and pursuit of their swimming goals as they pursue their University education. Please email Swim NS to make your contribution today.

Congratulations Amelia & Dean!
