My name is Alexander Whitehair, I am 18 years and will be attending Broome Community College in the Fall 2014. My dream in life is to become a professional hockey player. I put my first pair of skates on at three years old and from then on the passion I have for the game is immeasurable. I played on numerous hockey teams locally and one in Canada throughout my life which all have been a great experience. Now I have the opportunity to play in college which I couldn’t be happier. The one thing that advanced me the most as a hockey player is private lessons I took throughout the years. The lessons gave me confidence, strength and improved my skills as an overall player and overall a better person. Thank you for your consideration in considering me for this scholarship.
