The players attending post-secondary schools also received scholarship money from the Rex Turple Memorial Education Fund.

Rex played hockey most of his life and was still playing when he passed away at age 59. In tribute to his passion for hockey, the Memorial Education Fund was established.

This year, $10,300 was given to 10 players and in the last eight years a total of $86,300 has been awarded to Vipers players.
