Horns announce Scholarship Breakfast

Pronghorn Athletics at the University of Lethbridge is looking for a community team effort to fill the 1st Choice Savings Centre gym and kick off what they hope becomes an annual scholarship event that supports Pronghorn athletes.

The breakfast event on Tuesday, Sept. 25, will feature well-known television broadcaster Brian Williams, fresh off his experiences at the 2012 Olympic Games, as the featured speaker.

"The funds raised at the inaugural Pronghorn Scholarship Breakfast are the lifeline of our athletics program," says Robb Engen, Manager of Business Development, Sport and Recreation Services.

"Without the amazing support of the community, we would not be able to field competitive sports teams, vie for national championships or produce Olympic-calibre athletes."

Engen said the goal is to raise more than $60,000 to support the Pronghorn Scholarship Fund.

"This will allow us to assist our student athletes as they balance their studies with their sport, as well as help us increase our competitive edge as we recruit new athletes to our programs. We are in a very tough conference, competing against some very big schools, so it is important that we're able to offer our student athletes all we can in terms of scholarship support."

Considered the dean of Canadian sports commentators, Williams has covered virtually every professional and major amateur sports event around the globe. His broadcasting style has won numerous awards and praise from critics, and he will be making his first public speaking engagement at the Horns Scholarship Breakfast following his work at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
