Saturday, March 02, 2019

The Blazers completely supported the idea of the YELL award when I presented it to them a few months ago," said Drake Smith, President of Drake Cremation and Funeral Services in Kamloops. "We see it as a way to encourage the best in our youth and hope that it might inspire other children to excel, to show leadership and to demonstrate loyalty." Examples of Excellence may include improving one's school grades, starting a snow shoveling business to help neighbourhood seniors, or getting a hole-in-one. Examples of Leadership might include organizing a block clean-up crew, starting an after-school reading program for younger children in your school, or leading your sports team to victory. Examples of Loyalty might include faithfully visiting grandparents at home or in a care facility or cheering on your sister from the soccer sidelines through rain and snow all season long. "The Blazers are excited about this program," said Jim Choppen, Account Executive for the Blazers. "So many kids in our area do great things that often go unnoticed. We're looking forward to shining a light on behavior that we all value." For more information on the YELL award, go to the ‘FANS' menu on the Blazers website. Let's block ads! (Why?)...
