Terrace hockey player Rhett Munson is one of three high school graduates in the province to be awarded a scholarship from BC Hockey to put towards post-secondary education.

The District Scholarship – North West recognizes students who have excelled in both their academic achievements and contributions to their communities and the sport of hockey.

Munson made honour roll for all four terms of high school and was a leader on the Terrace Midget Reps’ squad – a team that showed grace under pressure this year after their hopes of travelling to provincials were crushed following a controversial appeal process.

But now Munson is off to Okanagan College to study civil engineering, where he will continue to play hockey for fun and fitness.

And with his graduation from both hockey and high school, that means his father, Darren, will be taking a step back from Terrace Minor Hockey – an organization he has been heavily involved in for the past seven years in a number of roles, including board member, vice-president, and team manager.
