La Broquerie’s Cynthia Cote is one of four winners of a Coaching Manitoba bursary given to students to be used towards their 2018-19 post-secondary tuition.

One male and one female each from Winnipeg and rural Manitoba were given the awards at a Monday press conference hosted by Sport Manitoba at the Canada Games for Sport Life Centre in Winnipeg.

The four Manitoba coaches bursaries, valued at $500 each, were part of $19,000 in scholarships awarded to 11 high school students, eight university students and four coaches.

Cote, 17, who just graduated last week from Saint-Joachim high school in La Broquerie, plans to study science in the coming year at St. Boniface University in Winnipeg.

Graduating with a 92% high school average, Cote garnered half a dozen scholarships from her school and she can add this $500 towards her studies for next year.

Her passion is figure skating and she has helped in coaching at the La Broquerie Figure Skating Club for the past eight years as well as figure skating herself.

In addition, she is kept busy both refereeing and playing hockey, as well as playing softball now in the summer.

Cote received the Silvio Sboto Memorial Rural Coach Female Award, and says she plans to continue coaching with the local figure skating club in La Broquerie in the coming year.
