Hayley and Cayden Wourms (nee Wilcock) Memorial Scholarship

History

Hayley Wilcock was born and raised in Assiniboia.  She attended all three schools and graduated in 2006 from Assiniboia Composite High School.  Her entire life was dedicated to learning and helping others.  She was a born leader and a friend to everyone.

Hayley immersed herself into everything she did. While attending high school, she was yearbook editor, trainer for the football team, captain of the cheerleading squad, and SRC president to name a few.  She even led a female teacher fitness class.  Undoubtedly, one of her proudest accomplishments was founding the Buds Mentoring Program.  This program paired High school students with younger kids for activities and fun.  Hayley loved fine arts, particularly dance and drama.  She attended the Drewitz School of Dance for 15 years, focusing on ballet and jazz.  This training proved beneficial in numerous award-winning high school drama productions.

While in university, Hayley continued to foster her humanitarian nature.   As a full-time student, she still managed time to volunteer at a variety of levels.  As a student at the University of Saskatchewan, Hayley was instrumental in bringing the Kinsmen Club to the University and, in fact, became its chartered President.  Civically, Hayley gave of her time to the city of Saskatoon, provincially to Saskatchewan, and internationally to several countries in Africa, as well as the impoverished country of Nepal. Hayley truly put the words ‘to make a difference’ into action.

Another immense source of pride for Hayley’s was her son Cayden.  While only two years old, Cayden was already showing signs of having his mother’s great leadership skills. Tragically, in 2012, Hayley and Cayden’s lives were cut short due to domestic violence.  As a legacy to them, a scholarship was established in their memory and honour.  The Hayley and Cayden Wourms (nee Wilcock) Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a deserving student who best possesses the qualities exhibited by Hayley as a student, and most importantly, as a person.
