Tlell man wins award

  • Dec. 8, 2008 1:00 p.m.

The BC Ambulance Service honored Tlell resident Terry Mitchell on the weekend with the Executive Commendation Award for leadership and his commitment to the patients and communities in the North. “Each year there are outstanding individuals and teams who go above the call of duty, (this) award recognizes their efforts amongst their peers,” said BCAS Northern Region Executive Director Mike Milchako. Mr. Mitchell became the first ever BCAS paramedic to participate in the Cops for Cancer, Tour de North ride to raise money for kids with cancer, the realization of his commitment “to do something to make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer,” as he told BCAS recently.”In the end, the lives of many children suffering from cancer will benefit from the contributions of the Tour de North. Entering the events as a representative of BCAS, Terry has not only bridged an important inter-agency relationship but has increased public awareness to the BCAS. Through his commitment to the cause he stands as an example to the rest of us to pursue our dreams,” according to the BCAS.
