Congratulations to Faith Rompain and Jaxson Smith-Peterson, recipients of the 2019 Island Savings Youth Scholarships at PISE.

Faith Rompain

Sport: Rowing

School: Claremont

“I was very excited and appreciative to learn that I was a selected recipient of the scholarship and I am deeply appreciative of the support. This scholarship is a stepping stone on the way to reaching my goals of rowing, such as a gold medal at Nationals in St. Catharines, Ontario. With the help of this scholarship I hope to set a good example and become someone younger athletes can look up to and learn from.”

Jaxson Smith-Peterson

Sport: Baseball

School: Lambrick Park

“I have been playing baseball since I was 8 years old and have just fallen in love with the game since then. In September of last year, I began training in the PISE High-Performance Baseball program. This scholarship will allow me to continue in the High-Performance program, which in turn will help with my ultimate goal of playing baseball at the collegiate level. I would like to thank everyone at Island Savings and the team at PISE for this scholarship.”
