in Memory of a Rugby Legend
Judy Seddon was affectionally referred to as our Rocker ‘Rugby Mom’ and sadly passed away in the spring of 2021. Judy’s commitment and passion for the game will be missed, but the legacy she leaves will continue to inspire the community to dedicate themselves to the game in her honour. The Judy Seddon Memorial Scholarship started with Judy’s daughter Karla, a Rocker Alumni, who made the decision to donate $10,000 towards a scholarship intended to recognize and assist a young Alberta woman planning to attend post-secondary school (university or college) and who had previously demonstrated a commitment to rugby as a player, coach, official, or volunteer, and ideally planning to develop their rugby career along with their education pursuits.
The Rockers were proud to donate to this scholarship as well, and continue to honour Judy’s unwavering commitment, passion and dedication to registration, administration, and many other facets of growing the sport of rugby. Judy you are sorely missed and we wish we could share just one more field side beverage with you.
