Vauxhall, AB –
First of all thank you to everyone who traveled in the extremely cold weather to attend the 14th Annual Awards night. Also a special thank you to all the sponsors and donors for leading the way with first class auction items.
Shaun Haney led the evening as our MC and did an excellent job. His Q & A was very professional and made the event very memorable for our featured speaker. Former Toronto Blue Jays great and 16 year MLB veteran Rance Mulliniks did a tremendous job speaking telling stories and giving insight into past Blue Jays seasons/players and told several great stories about his 16 year MLB career. Several Awards and Scholarships were handed out highlighted by the Reno Lizzi Scholarships presented by Barbara & Yukio Kitagawa.
The Award winners are listed below:
- Reno Lizzi Scholarship – Carlin Dick
- Reno Lizzi Underclassman – Jackson Clemett & Hunter Porter
- Coaches Award (newly named Blaine Burbank Coaches Award) – Ty Wevers
- Sports Connection Scholarships – Ben Adams & Max Grant
We are also very excited to welcome our 7th & 8th inductees to the Vauxhall Academy Wall of Excellence.
