2012 Young Female Citizen of the Year Award Recipient
Ask any athlete what makes their sport so great, and many will answer, the biggest difference is their coach. While KelsiTaron is certainly a force to be reckoned with on the volleyball court having recently won the school’s provincial championship, she is also one of the coaches helping to infuse a passion for the sport into a whole new group of players.
The captain of the Kelowna Christian School’s provincial championship volleyball team, Kelsi certainly knows the game and as such, her coaching at both Kelowna Christian School and the Kelowna Volleyball Club comes from the heart of someone who knows the game well.
But the volleyball court isn’t’ the only place you’ll find this grade 12 student volunteering her time. She’s also put in over 100 hours in 2012 alone at the Kelowna General Hospital, getting a first hand look at what it will be like once she completes her nursing degree. She spent time cooking and helping out at the Gospel Mission, helping with the children’s ministry at her church, and went on a mission trip to Mexico to build a home.
As basketball is another of her passions, she’s also spent many hours volunteering as a scorekeeper for both basketball and volleyball.
