Harry Hood Memorial Award


In 1948 Harry Hood left the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after 3 seasons and followed his high school coach, Les Lear, to Calgary. As a starting two way halfback, he helped the Stampeders through a perfect 15 win-0 loss season and their first Grey Cup win in club history, with a 12-7 final score over the Ottawa Roughriders in Toronto. Harry played 5 years for Calgary, from 1948-1952, the year he retired. He is the only player to wear #5 for the Stampeders, and following his untimely death from cancer in 1954 they retired his number as a tribute to his memory. While starring for the Calgary Stampeders he also gave a great deal of his time to coaching high school football at Central Collegiate Institute, which closed and then re-opened in 1968 as Central Memorial High School. It was Harrys’ belief that high school sports, and in particular football, were great contributors to the positive growth of young people. His play on the field and the way he conducted himself away from the game was a credit to himself, and an inspiration to his teammates. This award was established in Harrys’ honour in 1956 and is the longest standing award given out by the CSHSAA/Calgary Booster Club partnership. It is presented annually to the top student athlete in Division I football.

Henry Philip Taylor Award


Henry was a student at Queen Elizabeth High School in 1974 and a member of the junior boys football team. After a practice one night he complained of a headache in the locker room and collapsed. Unfortunately, he never regained consciousness and it was believed he died from a concussion. Henry was an outstanding young man who led quietly by his actions on and off the field. He was an inspiration to his teammates, his school and his community. This award has been named in honour of this unique individual and will carry his memory on into the future in appreciation by his teammates, coaches and school officials. The Henry Philip Taylor Award was initiated in 1975 and is presented annually to the top Division II or Division III student athlete in football.

Father Pat Gallagher Memorial Award


Father Gallagher came to Calgary in 1967 after teaching for several years in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Lethbridge. He taught chemistry and religious studies at St. Mary’s High School for 19 years and finished his last year at St. Francis High School in 1987. From there he went to Immaculate High School in Kelowna, BC, where he served as Chaplain and coached the cross country and track teams. Since 1999 he has been at St. Mary’s Church in Owen Sound, Ontario, where he continues to remain active. Father Gallagher was the track & field chairman in Calgary from 1968 until 1971 and this is where he began his illustrious career organizing cross country meets for the CSHSAA. His philosophy in setting up courses at River Park, Glenmore Park, Capitol Hill and Confederation Park was to accurately measure and mark a course with a mixture of hills and flat areas that led through some wooded parts, but always keeping in mind the spectators and competitors. He was the organizer that first came up with name tags from the Canadian Natural Gas Company for individual and team identification and the white boards for quickly and accurately placing the tags on the proper spaces represented by the runners’ finishing position. Within a few minutes of each race, all results were posted for everyone to see. Father Gallagher also organized several Provincial High School Cross Country Meets in Calgary for the CSHSAA. He coached cross country and track & field all 19 years he was at St. Mary’s and won 1 City Championship in track and several in cross country. Father Gallagher was also a chaperone for many of the Calgary teams that travelled to Provincial Championships during the 70’s and 80’s. Father Gallagher is a gentleman who promoted good sportsmanship amongst schools and always showed up with well trained and well coached teams. This award has been named in his honour.

Myrna Emprey Award


Myrna was a physical education teacher, department head and coach at William Aberhart School for many years and had a tremendous influence on the success of the school in athletics. Her teams were always well coached and displayed a high level of sportsmanship and enthusiasm that created a role model for others to follow. She also spent 1 year as the Secretary/Treasurer of the CSHSAA while John Semkuley was away on sabbatical. Myrna then moved back to William Aberhart, then Bishop Pinkham Junior High and Robert Warren Junior High as an Assistant Principal, and retired from that position in 1998. Myrna was also very involved in club volleyball as a coach and administrator. She was Manager of the Canadian Women’s National Team from 1974-76, culminating with the Olympics in Montreal. Even in retirement, Myrna found time to remain active in the CSHSAA. She coached volleyball at Henry Wise Wood for 2 years and then moved to Centennial High School when it opened in 2004. As there was no gym that year, Myrna showed her dedication and commitment to the program by practicing at the local YMCA every morning at 6:30 am. It paid off as she led her junior girls team to the playoffs and a most positive season in their first year as a high school. The Calgary Booster Club recognized Myrna in March of 2006 at their annual Sportsmans’ Dinner as an Honoured Athletic Leader for her many years of service to sports in the Calgary community. Myrna is also a current Director and Chairman of the Awards and Recognition Committed with the Calgary Booster Club. In 2007 she was inducted into the Alberta Volleyball Sports Hall of Fame. This award has been named in her honour and was first presented in 1993.

Dr. Arlene McGinn Award


Arlene was a teacher, coach and administrator at Bishop Carroll, Bishop Grandin and St. Mary’s High Schools during the late 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. A strong advocate of womens’ rights and equal opportunity for girls in athletics (particularly in basketball), Arlene worked hard and with a passion to bring this about. She ultimately was very successful in this cause. Arlene was one of two girls coaches (the other one being Lawrence King) making a motion at the Board of Governors meeting in 1973 that allowed the girls to finally join the boys in the North/South Selects Game as part of the format in January of 1974. The boys had played the previous two years, with the Calgary Stampeders and Calgary Police teams being featured in a preliminary game. Arlene was a diligent coach who worked hard on fundamentals and believed in the concept that the individual was important, but the team came first. Her hard work brought her several City Championships in junior and senior girls basketball. She ended her career in Calgary as an Assistant Principal and senior girls basketball coach at St. Mary’s High School, and has retired to White Rock, BC, so she can be closer to her children and grandchildren.

Laurie Robertson Memorial Award


Barry has dedicated over 17 years to promoting and coaching wrestling with the CSHSAA. He attended Royal Rhoades College and Queens University before coming to Calgary as a physical education teacher at Van Horne and A.E. Cross Junior High Schools. In 1992 he moved to Sir Winston Churchill High School and made a name for himself as an outstanding teacher and coach in wrestling circles. His girls teams have won eight City Championships and his boys teams have won four. Barry has also had five Provincial Championships with his girls and three boys Provincial Champions.

An excellent example of his passion for developing high school wrestlers was his willingness to help students at William Aberhart when they didn’t have a program. These students came to Sir Winton Churchill to learn and develop wrestling skills, and thanks to Barry, William Aberhart now has a successful program.

In his free time he likes to golf and work in his garden. He has been recognized in two garden magazines for his very talented greet thumb! Barry’s philosophy for wrestling is: “Winning is not as important as leaving students with a positive experience and a healthy appreciation for the sport”. As the high school chairman of wrestling for four years he saw the sport increase in interest and participation, particularly at the girls level. In summary, this award has been named after a most deserving individual who is a credit to his teaching profession and to the sport of wrestling.

Sharon’s dedication and passion has made her a most positive leader in all aspects of school life. She is a mentor to new coaches and an advocate for fair play, maximum participation and equal opportunity for all.

Golf is another of her interests and consequently she spent many hours trying to get this sport back into the high school program. Thanks to her efforts it was brought back for one year on a trial basis, but unfortunately didn’t last. However, high school badminton is thriving as more students become involved and both girls and boys programs are growing in numbers each year; which is a tribute to her leadership.

In summary, this award has been named after a most deserving and worthy individual.

Al Holm Award


Al began what was to become a very successful teaching and coaching career at Mount Royal Junior High in 1979. Ten years later he moved to Jack James High School, where he coached volleyball, wrestling and track & field. From there it was on to Western Canada High School, where he built a dynasty in track & field by winning four City and four Provincial Championships. Mentoring and training these same athletes over this period of time was one of his coaching highlights.

Al’s next move was to Bowness, where he carried on his tradition of developing young athletes and successful programs. From there he moved to his current school, Centennial High School, and was soon totally involved in coaching football, cross country and track & field. His philosophy is simply that hard work and dedication brings about results, regardless of talent or lack of it. Seeing his athletes improve over a season of training and perseverance is a real perk for Al.

As chairman of high school track & field these last couple of years, the program continues to grow thanks to Al’s leadership and enthusiasm. He is a hard working teacher and coach who cares about kids and for this and many other reasons he was honoured by the Calgary Booster Club at their Sportsman of the Year Banquet in 2008 as an Outstanding Athletic Leader in school & club sports. With people like Al coaching track & field it is a sure bet that the sport will continue to succeed for years to come. It is easy to understand why this award was named after him.

John F. Mayell Memorial Award


John was a native Calgarian who attended Balmoral, King George and Crescent Heights High Schools, where he was an outstanding athlete in football, hockey and track & field;which were the only sports offered at that time. In 1942 he went overseas with the RCAF as a Navigator. After the war he attended the U of Washington in Seattle, where he received his teaching degree. One of John’s early experiences was at New Dayton, where he coached basketball and track & field. In 1948 he was hired by the Calgary Board of Education as a PE teacher at Western Canada High School, where he also coached basketball and won 2 consecutive City Championships in the 1948-49 and 1949-50 seasons. After 5 years at Western he was offered the job of Director of High School Athletics for the city and he remained in that position for 25 years, retiring in 1978. His wife Helen was also an educator and I might add, a fantastic math teacher! John was the proud father of 2 children, a son Jack who is an architect in Calgary and a daughter Linda who lives in Edmonton. Under John’s leadership physical education and athletics became an outstanding program in Calgary that was admired by all. He was also instrumental in bringing both the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Separate School District together in athletics under the operational umbrella of the CSHSAA; and Calgary is the only successful program in Canada to do so. John was the first Secretary-Treasurer of the Alberta Schools’ Athletic Association and held that position until his retirement in 1978. On the national level, he was part of a committee which created the Canadian Federation of Provincial Schools Athletic Association in 1974, to better serve all of Canada in high school athletics. John was also honoured as the first recipient of the Bob Routledge Award for Outstanding Service to the Province of Alberta in Physical Education. In 1973 John was selected by the Calgary Booster Club as Calgary’s Sportsman of the Year. Finally, in 2007 at the age of 91 years, John was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame as a most worthy pioneer in high school athletics. The Outstanding Male Student Athlete Award has been named after this fine gentleman and outstanding educator and was first presented in 1990.

Calgary Booster Club Scholarships


This scholarship program began in 1991, with 10 scholarships of $250 each being awarded every year to grade 12 student athletes who are involved in and are members of several athletic teams during their high school careers. In other words, it is a maximum participation award. The number of scholarship and their value was increased in 2007-2008, with 15 scholarships of $500 each being awarded. Each year there are generally over 60 nominations, as each school is able to nominate 1 boy and 1 girl for the scholarships, and in addition the nominees for the Gretta Schwartz and John Mayell award are also included as nominees for these scholarships. The same selection criteria applies as our other awards. However, if an athlete has already won any of our 23 major awards that year, they are not eligible for one of these 15 scholarships. This allows more students to be recognized with a deserving award for a high level of participation.
