This scholarship is to honour the memory of Holly Moffatt a 2018 graduate of JMH.
Holly Moffatt was a bright, open- minded, positive, one- in- a million kind of person. She attended James. M. Hill Memorial High School for four years and was a part of the 2018 graduating class. Holly knew no strangers because to her everyone was a friend, whether she had met you once or had known you for years. She had this incredible ability to sense when someone needed a friend and she would be that friend; it was as if she had found you.
As a close friend of Holly’s, I can say without a doubt everyone who had the pleasure of being her friend was blessed in many ways. You never had to worry about being alone if Holly was there because she would be the first person to invite you to join her group. She was a bright light at James. M. Hill that could brighten anyone’s day with her smile, encouraging word, or her compliments.
Holly was an advocate for mental health awareness and was looking forward to becoming a child psychologist, so she could help others.
Holly was a bagel lover, a bee enthusiast, and a true friend.
Holly passed away May 21st, 2018 and is dearly missed.
