ABOUT ED TERRIS
Ed Terris was an outstanding teacher and coach.  He taught for many years at North Delta Secondary School and then moved into Administration at what was then Sands Junior Secondary School as its first Vice-Principal.  Ed then worked in the Abbotsford School District as a Principal until his retirement.

The Ed Terris Memorial Scholarships have been developed mostly through the hard work of many of Ed's former basketball players at North Delta Secondary School. Ed was a very successful coach for many years and two of his teams were B.C. Junior Basketball Champions in the early 1970's.

There has also been a great contribution from Ed's former coaching and teaching colleagues as well as other friends he has made through his great love for golf.  A Golf Tournament was held each year in Ed's honor and the proceeds from this event are the main source of funding for the scholarships provided each year as well as other charitable donations made in Ed's name

Donations to the Ed Terris Scholarship can be made through the National Sport Trust Fund.

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS
Each year, scholarships of $1000 each will be awarded to graduating seniors (two male and two female). These scholarships are open to students throughout the province.  The successful applicant must be a current member of Basketball BC.
