Trudy Schuurman was an avid skater and a long time member of the University Skating Club. Sadly, she lost the battle with cancer in 2004. Trudy was known for voicing her pet peeves and she always had strong opinions about poor sportsmanship. Nora Hollands was a long time friend of Trudy and in memory of her, Nora created and sponsors an annual award: The Trudy Schuurman Sportsmanship Award. This award is open to any skater, coach or volunteer of the University Skating Club that demonstrates true sportsmanship throughout the skating season.
