In the past, I had the great fortune of being introduced to a fantastic coach and teacher. Morgan Snow was a volleyball coach in rural Nova Scotia who constantly developed fantastic volleyball players and overall nice young women and men. My daughter played under his tutelage and a went on to play University volleyball and Nipissing in North Bay, Ontario. Morgan has touched the lives of many a young volleyball player and was finally recognized for his outstanding guidance to the volleyball and local community. Congratulations Morgan!

On a personal note, Morgan is a great friend. He is great to talk too about any topic, loves to teach and coach, and was a fantastic mentor. He guided me in many aspects of coaching and teaching volleyball and am very happy he is recognized for his dedicated service to the communities at large.
