Scholarships Notes

Welcome To Our Page


A $500 scholarship will be offered to a grade 12 student who is furthering their education in music studies and/or song writing with a passion for preserving natural habitats.

Background: Owen was a self-taught musician and loved singing and playing his guitar with an East coast flair. He was forever the host and had an open door to friends and family who would gather to play old Irish tunes. Owen’s life lived around music. It filled him with joy, created new friendships and was the “very best” gift he could share with all those around him. His mother was a musician, known for her East Coast fiddling and the iconic Loggieville Two Step. Ever the historian and engaged in worldly news, Owen’s songwriting came from a past he learned from, a present he lived in and a future he dreamed of. His gifts of prose and music combined to create many musical scores you may be familiar with. Owen grew up in Loggieville on the Miramichi River. His father was a salmon fisherman and his love for nature and natural landscapes, wetlands and maintaining wildlife habitats was always something he valued. This scholarship is put together in his memory by his daughters’ and siblings in hope to inspire and nurture music for the soul. The recipient of this award has shown volunteer hours to keep our shorelines clean, has an interest in song writing and sees themselves continuing to learn and share music and the health of the environment with others. Our land is so precious; To sing and dance upon it is a true blessing.
