2015: Tommy Blower
Tommy is a terrific young man who is headed to the University of Lethbridge in September to pursue Engineering. Below is a description of the impact Tommy has had at Oilfields High School.
“Tommy has played on our Boys Volleyball team for the past 4 years. He is a quiet and reserved young man who is willing to do whatever the team needs in order to succeed. He is the consummate team player as he congratulates people when they do well, and encourages people when they need to be built up. At all games and practices he is on time, prepared and dedicated to play his best no matter what role he has to play. Tommy is a modest young man who strives to improve with each practice or game he is involved with. He represents what it means to be a DRILLER – Dedication, Respect, Integrity, Learning, Leadership, Excellence and Responsibility. Most importantly though, Tommy is a great kid with amazing values. He is a role model for all student athletes at Oilfields High School.”
2014: Orrie Malmberg
Orrie had a terrific athletic career as a Driller. He was an impact player on both the basketball and volleyball teams throughout his career at Oilfields High School. Orrie is now off to Olds College next year to begin his studies to be a heavy equipment operator.
On behalf of STIX Hockey Academy, congratulations Orrie and good luck as you move into the next phase of your life!
