Edgar Stevenson – Peguis, MB (Interlake)
Edgar Stevenson hails from Peguis, Manitoba and has been associated with youth sports in excess of 27 years both in hockey and baseball. He is well known for transporting children from his community to sports events as far away as Brandon, as well as other remote areas.
Edgar not only shares his time and experience with the children but is an excellent role model and a valuable mentor for the children and youth he works with. He is also a valuable example for the adults in his community and the surrounding area by quietly and patiently sharing not only his time but also his expertise and enthusiasm for sports, as a healthy and safe activity for children.
Edgar is a certified Hockey Manitoba coach and has been volunteering his time in this regard for years. He is a valuable asset to the children in Peguis as they develop their skills each season.
Interlake Minor Hockey President, Kris Barrett, indicates that Edgar is a vital source of knowledge for the children, youth and adults he has known, as well as a provider of resources to ensure the children are able to experience positive activities while growing up.
