Dauphin Kings goaltender, Cole Sheffield 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.
“I think it is important to give back to the community simply because they do so much for me, the team and the organization,” said Sheffield. “Our fan base is amazing too, so to be able to do whatever I can to give back means a lot to them.”
A donation was made by RBC on Cole’s behalf that will go toward Whitmore School in Dauphin.
“It means a lot to be named RBC Community Ambassador for the Kings, to be able to lead by example and set a good example for those around me and younger kinds means a lot. I was raised to make positive choices and always be kind to everyone so to be able to see that kind of paying off means a lot.”
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.
