Glen Simard, a local teacher, has been awarded 4th place in CBC's 'This One's For You” contest which “asked Canadians to nominate someone – mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandparent, sibling, coach or mentor – who went the extra distance to make your sports dream a reality. “ Glen was nominated by sons, Andrew & Nathan, with some assistance from their mother, Lori. The boys aged, 10 & 12, wrote about how their father has always been there to coach or help their teams. Last summer he coached both boys baseball teams and each team won their respective league titles. In addition to coaching, Glen was also the Mosquito director and Vice President of the Baseball Association in Brandon. Anyone, who spends time at the rink will certainly recognize him from behind one of the benches of either a house league, or double roster team. All of this is in addition to the hours he puts in organizing intramurals in basketball, soccer and floor hockey at the school level.

Glen, and family, take home a trip for 2 to Niagara Falls, $1,500 and a helicopter ride.
