\Vauxhall, AB –
First of all thank you to everyone who traveled to attend the 17th 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 Jay ace and MLB allstar Ricky Romero did a tremendous job speaking telling stories and giving insight into his wonderful 10 year professional career. Ricky walked the large audience through his career from high school to be an MLB allstar. 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 – Cardel Dick
- Reno Lizzi Underclassmen Award – Eric Reiling & Brett Getz
- Coaches Award (newly named Blaine Burbank Coaches Award) – Kyle Yip
- Sports Connection Scholarship – Raphael Ranger
We are also very excited to welcome our 8th & 9th inductees to the Vauxhall Academy Wall of Excellence.
