Mrs. Jacks became a well-known and well-loved figure in the ringette community and over the years became known across Canada as ringette’s “goodwill ambassador”.

Starting in the 2010-2011 academic year, Cara has generously increased this scholarship to $1,000. Two annual scholarships are provided and successful applicants also receive a certificate recognizing their achievements.
