St. Peter’s College announces new scholarship in memory of Humboldt Broncos’ player

By Krystal Shutko, Student Services Officer, St. Peter’s College

St. Peter’s College at Muenster, SK, recently announced a new scholarship opportunity, the Jacob Leicht Memorial Game Changer Award. This award has been established by Kurt and Celeste Leicht in memory of Jacob Leicht, a son, brother, hockey player and St. Peter’s alumnus, who lost his life April 6, 2018 in the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus accident.

Jacob possessed a strong passion for all things athletic. With hockey and fitness as pillars of his character, his intentions to study kinesiology amplified his interests in helping those around him. The discipline to succeed at hockey and university studies at the same time exemplify perseverance and discipline.

This memorial award is designed for those students wanting to succeed in the demanding program of kinesiology, because they are, like Jacob was, passionate about the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle that will inspire and help others. It is hoped that this financial assistance serves as a game changer in assisting students on their path to success.

The purpose of this award is to provide financial support to students intending to pursue kinesiology and/or health and fitness focused post secondary studies. The value of the award will be $1,100 to be used for tuition and related educational expenses. Please visit the SPC website for more details about this scholarship and how to apply for all the scholarships available for St. Peter’s College students.

The June 21, 2020 deadline for scholarship applications is fast approaching, and we hope all SPC students will apply and take advantage of the over $80,000 in scholarships and bursaries available at St. Peter’s College (SPC). Students can still apply and take advantage of their University of Saskatchewan and external scholarships in addition to SPC scholarships.

SPC advisors are hosting an online WebEx information session on Wednesday May 27 at 1:00 p.m., anyone is welcomed to sign up and attend. We will be discussing USask, SPC, classes, registration, student loans, scholarships, and much more to do with beginning the first year of university. Please join us by signing up on our website at
