At a surprise special presentation at this week’s Warriors Winter Workout, long-time Warrior volunteer, coach and director Tim Sheahan was presented with a 2015 United Way Community Builder Award. With close to 200 players and their families on hand representing all four of the Warriors tackle teams, ‘Coach Tim’ received his award from Aliya Sharif (United Way Coordinator, Engagement Programs and Market Research) and United Way volunteer (CBC Videographer) Waub Rice.
Mr. Rice spoke on behalf of the United Way outlining the purpose of the United Way Community Builder Program. “The United Way Community Builder Program honours individuals who work tirelessly, passionately and collaboratively to make Ottawa a better place in which to live, work and raise a family. Tim Sheahan is a very deserving volunteer,” stated Mr. Rice. He continued by summarizing ‘Coach Tim’s’ nomination letter which outlined ‘Coach Tim’s’ year’s of commitment to his community, the Warriors players and families. In accepting the honour Tim Sheahan said, “The Bell Warriors mean a great deal to me and my entire family . We got hooked 10 years ago , and we still have a love affair with the club. Today was a special day for me and my family and I want to thank you all for your honour. Thank you so much for the acknowledgement.”
