Red Deer College’s 14th Annual Kings and Queens Scholarship Breakfast on March 28 will feature Canadian National Women’s Soccer Coach John Herdman.

As head coach of the Canadian Women’s Soccer Team, Herdman led the team to bronze medals at both the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The team also took gold at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico – the first Pan Am gold in Canadian soccer history.

Herdman – a nominee for both the 2012 and 2015 FIFA Coach of the Year – stresses the importance of developing a high-performance culture, learning to overcome adversity with grace, and the role of leaders to inspire trust, confidence and success, whether it’s on the field, in the workplace or in the home.

The Kings and Queens Scholarship Breakfast creates a way for student athletes to pursue their dreams of sports and education. Since its inception, this event has raised more than $280,000 for athletic scholarships.

The breakfast takes place in the RDC main gym. Doors open at 6:30 a.m., followed by a networking breakfast at 7 a.m. The main presentation takes place at 8:30 a.m.
