The North Hills Amateur Hockey Association has honored the memory of a long-time fixture with the organization, Bernard “Bernie” Woodrow, with a ceremony and the creation of a scholarship.

Woodrow, who died Feb. 7 at age 82, served many years as a board member and treasurer for the association, which is the parent organization for Pittsburgh Viper Hockey and Esmark Stars AAA Hockey teams.

A ceremony and banner presentation to honor Woodrow's commitment to the organization and amateur hockey in the western Pennsylvania was held March 4 at the Pittsburgh Ice Arena in New Kensington.

“As a lifelong educator who prided himself on helping kids move forward, in the classroom and on the ice, Bernie's influence and help was felt by many,” said Dave Kosick, general manager of the Esmark Stars.

Woodrow also was honored with an educational scholarship established in his name.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
