The Canada Chapter of the Clan Gregor Society has long established a partnership with the Rob Roy Pipe Band. In 2022, the Band was able to resume practices and performances and so we resumed our Scholarship award.
After consideration by a committee of MacGregors the following recipient was selected. It gives us great pleasure to present this award to Grace Woodman. In choosing Grace to receive this award, the committee noted the following recommendation from the Band Executive:
Grace Woodman began taking Highland Dancing lessons with Rob Roy when she was very young. Now, at age 13, she is one of our most senior students and has become a lovely, graceful dancer. Grace is a very respectful student. She demonstrates a growth mindset by making great effort to correct her technique, and because of her calm demeanor and willingness to work, she learns new steps quickly. Grace is committed to her dancing and has performed many times over the last few years with the Rob Roy Pipe Band and Highland Dancers, including at Kingston’s Multicultural Festival and at Fort Henry’s annual military Tattoo. Her teachers hope that Grace will continue to dance for many years to come!
With all of this in consideration, we select Grace Woodman as the award recipient.
Note: CGSCC is grateful to June MacGregor Jain and Al MacGregor for their support and dedication on the Scholarship selection committee.
