Barrhaven Independent 2014 Person of the Year

Last week, I was contacted by the Barrhaven Independent Newspaper, wanting to do a story on me. What I didn’t know was that I was going to be named the 2014 Barrhaven Independent Glen Dicks Person Of The Year! I was extremely honoured and touched. The article was extremely well written by Jeff Morris. He always does such an amazing job. Glen Dicks was an employee of the newspaper who passed away after a long illness.  According to Morris, Dicks was a relentless and selfless volunteer in the community.  That is why it’s special for me to get these recognitions and to be associated with such individuals by the community when I am not expecting them. I hope to be just as involved this year during my journey to my next World Championships in Italy, May.
