Kennedy starts hockey scholarship

Lecturer Michael P.J. Kennedy with Huskie hockey players.

English sessional lecturer Michael P.J. Kennedy, well-known for the popular class he created called Hockey in Canadian Literature, has made another noteworthy contribution to hockey at the U of S.

Kennedy has donated half of the money he received for recently winning a teaching award, to help fund a new scholarship for members of the Huskie men’s hockey team.

This isn’t the first time Kennedy has helped out the team. A year ago, when his book Words on Ice: A Collection of Hockey Prose was published, he held a book sale of autographed copies at Rutherford Rink during a men’s hockey game and donated all $620 in proceeds to the men’s hockey program.

Now, following his recent receipt of the College of Arts & Science’s 2003-04 Teaching Excellence Award for Humanities and Fine Arts, Kennedy is providing half, an undisclosed amount, for a new Men’s Hockey Team scholarship in his name.

Kennedy extols the value of hockey for individuals and the University. Men’s coach Dave Adolph says Kennedy sets a good example of how faculty can help student-athletes playing university sports.
