They also received a CHOA 2017 Student Membership that will allow them to attend events and network with our members.

Congratulations to the following individuals:


Alex Taylor - University of Calgary

I am a fourth year Chemical Engineering Student with a minor in Petroleum at the University of Calgary. During the first three summers of my studies, I was lucky enough to gain field experience with companies involved in the extraction and production of gas and heavy oil.  Further, I have recently completed a 12-month internship in the engineering department of a thermal bitumen (CSS) production facility.  Outside of work and school, I enjoy golfing, hiking, and skiing.  Upon graduating, I am eager to apply my education and work experience in a challenging role in the energy sector.  I am very grateful to CHOA and its members for this scholarship; it helps me take a significant step in advancing my education.  


Steven Kovats - University of Calgary

I was born and raised in Calgary AB, with a background in Mechanical Engineering. I first received my Mechanical Engineering Technologist Diploma at SAIT, then completed my Mechanical Engineering Degree at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Currently, I am working in the Calgary Oil & Gas industry, while completing my MBA full time in the evenings at the University of Calgary.


Holly Paynter - Mount Royal University

I am currently a student attending Mount Royal University. I am presently in the 3rd year of a 4 year degree in Business Administration, Majoring in Marketing with a Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

After graduating from University I hope to make my mark in the music and entertainment industry. One of the greatest passions in my life is music, and making connections with people. I would love to be a part of an event marketing team that would create legendary experiences for people by hosting events that will be remembered by the patrons for years to come. I have over seven years of experience working in customer service, including the event and restaurant/ nightclub industry. This combined with my aptitude for creativity, love for making connections, and my knowledge from my Business degree, I hope to make an ideal fit into an event marketing company upon graduation.
