Swan Valley Stampeders forward, Myles Mason 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.
“My family has instilled in me the importance of contributing and giving back to any community we are a part of,” Mason shared. “I have been fortunate to come from a family that has provided a lot of opportunity for me and I realized that not everyone has the same opportunity. In the end, it seems to come natural to me and I like that I can bring some enjoyment to someone’s day.”
A donation was made by RBC on Myle’s behalf that will go toward Taylor Elementary School in Swan River.
“Every Tuesday throughout the year I went into a grade 2 class and participated and helped in any way I could. To be recognized as an RBC Community Ambassador means the world to me. This type of recognition is something I don’t take lightly and I am truly honoured and humbled to receive this award two years in a row for the Swan Valley Stampeders,” Mason finished.
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.
