  • On April 10, accomplished businesswoman and successful Canadian curler Cheryl Bernard will share her message about resiliency, and the power of choice and perspective at the 16th Annual Kings & Queens Scholarship Breakfast. As the 2010 Olympic curling silver medalist and four-time Alberta women’s curling champion, Bernard knows first-hand the value of goal setting.

    The two-time Olympian is well-known for her accomplishments on the ice but has also had success in business, starting an insurance brokerage at the age of 23 and building it up to a multi-million dollar company. A lifelong volunteer, Bernard also dedicates her time to supporting a variety of non-profit organizations.

    At the Kings & Queens Scholarship Breakfast, she will inspire audience members to take control of their future and make their dreams come true through strategic planning and making positive choices with her engaging presentation You Hold The Pen. Andrew Jones, a third-year member of the RDC Kings Curling team and 2018 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Men’s Curling silver medalist, is especially excited for this year’s event.

    “Growing up watching curling on TV, Cheryl has been a long-standing role model to me and many curlers around the country as she chased her dreams,” he says. “I am looking forward to hearing her speak about dealing with adversity along with providing tools to help me shape my own success. She has been through a lot, and the wisdom and experience she has will resonate with everyone in a different and meaningful way.”

    Jones, co-chair of the RDC Student-Athlete Advisory Council, is thankful how scholarships allow student-athletes at Red Deer College to compete in their chosen sport while receiving a quality education. The Scholarship Breakfast raises funds for the Athletics Leadership Fund which supports the sustainability of the RDC Athletics Scholarship program.

    “The positive impact of scholarships and the Scholarship Breakfast is vast. The scholarships that I have received allow me to attend RDC and curl without having to work during the academic year,” says Jones, a Bachelor of Business Administration General Management student. “I can fully commit myself to my studies, my sport, and make time to give back to the community, which is a core value of RDC Athletics. Every year I am amazed by the generous support from the community, which gives us all the opportunity to become the best versions of ourselves in the classroom and during competition.”
