Bursary recipient Tana Genge of Anchor Point is completing a four year co-operative kinesiology program at MUN in St. John’s, with plans to become a physiotherapist or massage therapist.
Tana has played several sports throughout her life, and was a member of many teams during high school. She was a member of the AAA midget female hockey team, the Straits under-20 hockey team, volleyball team, and badminton team, to name just a few. She has also been a member/leader of cross country skiing, figure skating, drama troupe, and a minor hockey coach. Presently, Tana plays with a women’s hockey league in St. John’s, the Molson 67 volleyball league, and she remains a member of the Straits under-20 hockey team.
As a volunteer, Tana was an active member of her high school’s student council and guidance team, and tutored with Tutoring for Tuition. She received the “Canada Cord” in the Girl Guides of Canada program, coordinated an Operation Christmas Child program at her school, and was a winner of the Miss Achievement NL Healthy Living Award.
Tana says she’s a hard worker and gives her best effort in all endeavors. She hopes in the future to find employment as a physiotherapist or massage therapist in St. Anthony, as this region has a strong need for one.
