Citizen of the Year announcedPosted: June 26, 2012

Acting mayor, Councillor Shelly McLean, has announced Elkford resident Dustin Murray as the 2012 Elkford Citizen of the Year.

Dustin was nominated as Citizen of the Year for the limitless hours he has dedicated to the Elkford Secondary School Girls’ Volleyball Team since 2007, the WildCat Grass Smash, coaching Club Volleyball and the time he has dedicated to many other clubs and organizations in town. Dustin is known as a hard working and dedicated individual, involved with the Wapiti Ski Hill, PAC, Early Childhood Development Committee event and activities, minor ball, karate and archery – all while raising a young family.

Dustin helps to make Elkford a wonderful place for residents and visitors alike and is a mentor and role model to youth in our community. Dustin is very deserving of the honour of the Citizen of the Year, notes a district press release.
Dustin will be honoured as the Citizen of the Year at the Wildcat Days Opening Ceremonies on Friday, June 29, at 6 p.m. and will also have the honour of being the Grand Marshall for our annual Wildcat Days Parade on Saturday, June 30, at 10:30 a.m.
