Gordon Hooey Memorial Scholarship Recipient – Erin Fitzgibbon

March 30, 2024

The winner of this year’s Gordon Hooey Memorial Scholarship is Erin Fitzgibbon.

Erin has been involved in curling since she seven years old when her Dad took her to the Vancouver Curling Club. Since then, she’s been involved in curling in various ways. Erin has several accomplishments already in her young career, including:

  • 2024 BC U18 Girls Champions, Gold (skip)
  • 2024 Canadian U18 Girls Championships, 6th place (skip)
  • 2023 BC Winter Games, Bronze (skip)
  • 2023 BC U21 Championships, Bronze (lead)

“It’s feels great and to be selected for this award,” said Erin. “I’ve had such a fun year through coaching Little Rockers and playing competitively and this was a great way to cap it off. Thank you to Curl BC and the awards committee for this opportunity.”

Erin, who curls out of Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster is looking forward to continuing her curling career after high school.

“Curling will be a regular part of my university life. I plan on competing at either the U20s or USport championships. It’s been a great way for me to make connections, friendships and push myself to achieve my goals.”

Erin is still undecided where she’ll attend university. Congratulations to Erin Fitzgibbon, our Gordon Hooey Memorial Scholarship award recipient.

The Gordon Hooey scholarship fund is administered through the Victoria Foundation in perpetuity. Ideally, it will go to juniors interested in becoming coaches, but it could also support the post-secondary education of juniors who have demonstrated a commitment to becoming top-level curlers and who show leadership skills in their communities.
