Virden Oil Capitals captain, Brody Wilson was named one of thirteen, MJHL – RBC Community Ambassadors earlier this season.
Each ambassador has displayed outstanding citizenship and sportsmanship both on and off the ice and a commitment to volunteerism. RBC Community Ambassadors are recognized for making a difference and giving back to their communities where they play.
“Giving back is a great way to get to know your community and it’s citizens,” Wilson explained. “It’s always been important to me to give my time and volunteer as it is a great way to strengthen our communities. I hope that by volunteering I can inspire others to do the same.”
A donation was made by RBC on Brody’s behalf that will go towards Virden Junior High.
“I have volunteered and been a substitute teacher there, so I have developed a strong connection with the staff and students. My billet siblings also attend the school and they have many valuable programs that would benefit from the donation.”
“I’m very proud and honoured to have been recognized as a RBC Community Ambassador representing the Oil Capitals and MJHL. I am very grateful to have been part of theses two great organizations and for having the opportunity to make a difference, be a positive influence and give back to our communities on behalf of them,” Wilson concluded.
During the MJHL Turnbull Cup Finals, one RBC – MJHL Community Ambassador will be named as the recipient of the RBC Community Award, which comes with a further donation from RBC in the player’s name to a school in their local community.
