2019-20 Humanitarian Award – Keltie Jeri-Leon
The T-Birds Humanitarian award is presented annually to the player that represents what every player should be on and off of the ice. Jeri-Leon served as a mentor and role model to local students, making visits to schools during the season and participating in a wide range assemblies and elementary school reading initiatives.
“Keltie embodies what it means to be a humanitarian both inside and outside of the locker room. He was our most active player at social events and we knew that we could rely on him to be a positive presence within our organization and the community of Kent,” said T-Birds Skill Development and Video Coach Jared Crooks.
The T-Birds organization is very proud of Jeri-Leon’s off-ice accomplishments this season.
