About this volunteer:
2004 - 19-24 Year Old Award Recipient

Nominated by both the Boys and Girls Club and the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, Chelsea has impacted the lives of many in our community.

She has demonstrated a tremendous love for youth and has an abundance of energy and enthusiasm for the task at hand. Chelsea is extremely patient and gentle and has proven that she is committed to children who are in need of caring and positive role models.

Volunteer's Name: Chase McMurren

About this volunteer:
2004 - 16-18 Year Old Award Recipient

With over 1500 volunteer hours to his credit, Chase is a volunteer whirl wind!

As an honour student at Winston Churchill High School, he is actively involved with the Student's Council as the Fine Arts Chair and participates in the Interact Club, a Rotarian affiliated organization whose major emphasis is for its members to be mentors and role models for elementary aged students.

With parent support, Chase began volunteering at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital as an entertainer when he was only 12 years old. According to Chase, this was because he "wanted to share his talent and gift of music to brighten the day of the patients, visitors and staff at the hospital."

Chase has also been actively involved in his Church in a number of roles including Christian Education Teacher, Worship Leader, Piano Accompanist, Choir Conductor, Youth Sponsor, Church Administrative Assistant and Outreach Director.

All of this, and he is still managing to graduate from high school one year early!

Chase is a shining example of youth in action!

Volunteer's Name: Nick Malcolm

About this volunteer:
12-15 Year Old Award Recipient

Nick represents a remarkable example of community spirit to his peers and those he meets. He likes to show others how much fun volunteering can be and always encourages them to get involved.

Nick was so keen to start volunteering at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital that, with the support of his mother, he started volunteering at the age of 11. Helping with Santa's Pancake Breakfast, Tagging and Bagging, Whoop-Up Days and office duties, Nick gave of his time until he could officially start volunteering in Pediatrics at the age of 14 years.

Technology is a big part of Nick's life and of course he has found a way to meld this new passion with his love of volunteering! Whether it is at LCI, the Van Dance Studio One or the Lethbridge Musical Theatre, Nick never hesitates to lend his hand with soundboard and lighting design.

Nick's dedication to volunteering is evident in his zest for wanting to volunteer at such an early age. He is a dependable, enthusiastic, caring young man who enjoys making a difference in people's lives.

Nick is an inspiration to all!

Volunteer's Name: Mandie Blackman

About this volunteer:
12-15 Year Old Award Recipient

Youth does not always equal inexperience-especially in Mandie's case. She has already contributed over 185 hours of community service to organizations such as Girl Guides of Canada, the YWCA and the Lethbridge Regional Hospital.

Mandie is currently a Grade 10 student at Winston Churchill High School where she is taking a full International Baccalaureate course load, yet she still finds time to volunteer!

As a positive, enthusiastic and dedicated member of Girl Guides, Mandie inspired a love of volunteerism in her Guide Unit by showing the Girls how much fun it is to help and be involved with others in the community.

Because of her incredibly positive outlook and maturity, Mandie was also a perfect candidate for mentoring her peers in the Lethbridge Regional Hospital's volunteer program.

All who know Mandie respect and admire her-no better qualifications could be found for a future Leader of Tomorrow!
