2020's Founder's Day Award goes to Dr Jason Thoresen
09 Oct 2020
It is our pleasure to announce the winner of this year’s Stirling Founders’ Day Award – Dr Jason Thoresen. It is a particularly suitable choice as Dr Thoresen is a medical practitioner in town who has been at the coalface of the Covid-19 pandemic, working hard and selflessly in serving his community during this crisis.
Jason was Stirling Headboy in 2006 and maintained an academic aggregate over 80% for every exam at high school. At school he was a member of the South African Biathle team for 4 years, finishing in 9th place at the World Biathle Championships in Monaco in 2005. He was selected for the SA Schools U16 Hockey team and played Border Hockey throughout school, also swimming in the provincial team from primary school and he also played Rugby and Cricket for A teams.
He studied medicine at Stellenbosch and has become a highly-regarded and popular doctor in town. He still plays premier league hockey and annually completes the ½ IronMan on behalf of children’s charities, normally dressed outrageously. He is a committed husband and father and we are proud of his successes.
