“Supporting the education of our players is a cornerstone of the T-Birds and WHL. Being able to give high school students in our community, who are currently facing an unprecedented change in their education, an extended learning opportunity that will provide valuable real world work experience, portfolio and resume material, and develop new skills is something we thought would be beneficial to our community,” said T-Birds director of communications Ian Henry.
