Loyalist PR student receives athletics award

Congratulations to Loyalist PR student Chris Douma who was recognized this week with an athletic scholarship for his achievements on the Loyalist men’s basketball team.

“Your commitment, leadership and school spirit have a positive effect on the entire college,” noted Jim Buck, Assistant Director of Athletics as he addressed award recipients at this week’s athletics luncheon.

“When you’re told you have to work harder, you do. When your coaches call extra practices, you come. You juggle classes, work placements, practices, games, part-time jobs and family responsibilities. These athletic scholarships are our way of recognizing your accomplishments athletically and academically. Your hard work is noticed and appreciated. Congratulations.”

We’re proud of you, Chris -- go, Lancers!
