Berkley Jo Petersen has
been a student at the University of Regina for just a
few weeks but she can already tell the next four
years will be great.
“I can see myself expanding my roots at the
University of Regina by
getting involved in volunteer opportunities and
meeting lots of new people,” says the first-year
Faculty of Kinesiology &
Health Studies student.
Petersen is already
signed up for intramural
volleyball, and enrolled in
the UR Guarantee program – a program designed to support students
through every step of the
university experience to
successful employment.
Upon coming to university this fall, Petersen was
one of 40 students to receive the University of
Regina 40th Celebration
Award, valued at $1,000.
To apply, she submitted a
short essay outlining her
goals for the next 40 years

Regina education supports achieving those
The University created
this new scholarship to
celebrate its 40th year as
an autonomous, degreegranting institution.
In addition to this
scholarship, Petersen was
one of the two recipients
for the Saskatchewan
Physical Education Association Award, and the recipient of the Don Powel
Award from the University of Regina. She also received the Centennial
Merit Plus scholarship
from the University of
“Scholarships have been
extremely important to
me this year,” says Petersen. “They have helped
me financially pay for the
first year of tuition, and
have also helped me reflect on all my accomplishments these last
couple years.”
Petersen, who is origi-
nally from Mossbank, SK,
says she wants to encourage incoming students to
look for opportunities to
support their post-secondary education.
“I want everyone to
know that it is rather easy
to find and apply for
scholarships, if you have a
couple hours, take the
time to do so.”
Pedersen is the granddaughter of Gordon and
Myrna Rolfe of Gravelbourg.

Les quatre équipes de
l’École Beau Soleil et l’École secondaire Collège
Mathieu ont défendu
l’honneur de Gravelbourg
au niveau compétitif, et
ce, avec beaucoup de
plaisir. Les filles juniors
de madame Mélanie Lepage-Forest se sont démarquées le plus en livrant
une chaude lutte aux filles
juniors de l’École StIsidore de Bellevue. La
première position leur a
échappé des mains par
quelques points seulement. Une revanche amicale les attend l’année
prochaine! Go les Alouettes, Go!
À l’Omnium, on a eu du « fun »!

la franche camaraderie
