Hello, my name is Zoee Stromberg. I am a recent graduate from Oilfields High School in Black Diamond, Alberta. In the fall of 2016 I began attending SAIT to study Sonography. Like many kids, I have been lucky that STIX Hockey has impacted my life in a positive way. This past June I was awarded the 2016 STIX Scholarship. This Scholarship has been very helpful in setting myself up to pursue the career I have chosen. Graduating high school and taking my first big step out into the real world can be a very intimidating experience. Moving away from home and starting fresh in a place that is unfamiliar can be daunting. With all of this on one’s mind some would choose to push aside financial stresses that will soon become a reality once we are settled into our new lifestyle. With the help of STIX, paying for textbooks and tuition fees became a lot easier and not as stressful for me as a recent graduate. I am very grateful for such an amazing company to have chosen myself to be their recipient, and proud to say STIX has helped me pursue the career path of a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at STIX Hockey for this opportunity and especially Jeff Ovens for presenting myself with the award.
