This scholarship fund is named in remembrance of Hugh Pomeroy, who had been a member of the Nordic Combined Development Team for three years. His long time goals were to represent Canada at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary as well as to become the Canadian Champion. Before Hugh was able to achieve these goals he died as a result of a tragic training accident near Lake Placid, New York, in October of 1986.
Hugh was a resident of Cantley, Quebec; a graduate in Computer Technology from Heritage Campus, C.E.G.E.P., Hull, Quebec; and a member of the Ottawa Ski Club. The highlight of Hugh’s short International career was representing Canada in Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping at the 1985 World University Games in Italy.
Hugh will be remembered as a hard working person and an athlete who was able to focus on his goals and work steadily towards achieving them. He was an outstanding young man and athlete.
