The Oakville Soccer Club proudly awarded eight accomplished Club members with scholarships at the 8th Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony held at the Glen Abbey Golf Course in August. These outstanding young ladies and gentlemen were selected by a committee based on their contributions to the Club, as well as academic achievements and service to the community of Oakville.
