Dexton continually thinks of everybody else over himself. No task is too big, too small, or beneath him. From the first day Dexton came into Drayton Valley, he has immersed himself into being a part of the community.
He has helped set up a reading program for the elementary schools in the area, along with teaching math, science, and gym classes. Once a week Dexton gathers a group of hockey players to go to a school and participate in their daily activities.
Dexton also contributes to the young, up-and-coming hockey players by helping and coaching minor hockey teams on the ice. Other acts of service include painting decks, picking up apples and cleaning yards, and shoveling driveways for people around his community.
Dexton?s goal is to do whatever he can to build community spirit and says that he could not accomplish any of this without the help of his teammates who also provide a support and a willingness to giving back to the community of Drayton Valley.
Each AJHL team will nominate one player who has shown exemplary commitment to community service to be recognized as an AJHL RBC Community Ambassador – all 16 athletes will make up the 2019-20 AJHL RBC Community Ambassador Team! At the conclusion of the regular season, one AJHL RBC Community Ambassador will be selected as the recipient of the RBC Community Award. A donation will be made to the Ambassador?s local charity from RBC and a Scholarship will be provided to the player from the AJHL to be used for post-secondary education.
