Leann Smith’s involvement in minor hockey spans over 37 years within three provinces. For the last 17 years she has been an integral part of developing hockey within the East Kootenay region. Leann has not only volunteered her time for the East Kootenay Minor Hockey Association (MHA), but has also sat on the East Kootenay Board for nearly two decades. She truly is a remarkable volunteer as she has filled numerous roles throughout her years including Secretary, Treasurer, Operation Task Group Member, Discipline Task Group Member, League Commissioner, Zone Program Task Group Member, and Zone Program Lead. She was also the force behind bringing the Zone program to the region that began in. Leann’s focus has always been about providing an amazing MHA for the players in her area. An environment that would help them grow and flourish as people as well as players. This focus has allowed Leann to do many remarkable things and has spurred her on even when times were difficult. It would take far more than a “no” from the naysayers to deter Leann from achieving the highest standard for the people within her MHA. She has been a pillar for East Kootenay MHA over the years as she has been a builder, a helper, a teacher, an advocate, a protector and so much more. She has spent her life helping to better the game of hockey and is an incredibly deserving of the Life Members’ Volunteer – Executive Award. Congratulations!
