Nelson swimmer Samuel Matthew has received another honour from the BC Summer Games.

After winning six medals at the competition, two silver a four bronze, Matthew has also been given one of 16 Coast Capital Savings Athlete Bursaries.

Recipients were chosen from over 350 applicants for their significant achievements in sport and education and most importantly for their leadership contributions to their schools, community, or sport associations.  The athletes are from 16 different communities around the province and their leadership involvement includes service with student councils, community events, food banks, fundraising, coaching, and officiating, to name a few.

“Coast Capital Savings is committed to building a richer future for youth in the communities where we live and work,” said Maureen Young, Manager, Community Partnerships for Coast Capital Savings. “These young athletes have demonstrated dedication and commitment to their sport, their communities, and their schooling.  We’re thrilled to be able to contribute to their future goals with the presentation of these bursaries.”
