Alberta Champions: Who, What and Why?
It has been said that the benchmark of a great city is the quality of its people.
Calgary is an outstanding city, made even greater by the contributions of thousands of volunteers who participate in projects all over the city every year. In fact, these Calgarians are following in the footsteps of past citizens who laid the foundations of this great city.
Some current leaders of the Calgary community saw a challenge in our community around a huge lack of recognition of past community leaders and philanthropists. They have decided it is time we put a face on leaders of the past and honour them appropriately as well.
Alberta Champions Society in Recognition of Community Enrichment was formed to
commemorate, recognize and honour those Calgarians that have made a significant
contribution to the community and the city of Calgary. This will be achieved by
creating “Fields of Fame” around the city as tributes to men and women of the past
who contributed to the Calgary of today.
