“I am honored to be the recipient of the Manon Rheaume Scholarship. This scholarship is very special to me because it’s an opportunity for women hockey players to be recognized for all our hard work on and off the ice. Manon has inspired me in many ways. She has worked hard, and has taken her opportunities and passed them forward. Someday I would like to achieve great things and provide opportunities to others.” – Amanda Seltzer
