News Update: New Communications Coordinator

Introducing our New Communication Coordinator

Forty-five applications later we have found our new Communications Coordinator. We are thrilled to welcome Matthew Gourlie to our team.

Matthew brings with him a wealth of experience in the communications field. Having earned a BA in Journalism and Communications from the University of Regina, Matthew spent much of his career to date as a sports reporter with the Moose Jaw Times-Herald. As the face of the industry changed so did Matthew, embracing technology through website and social media applications. A sport fan himself, Matthew has had the opportunity to cover just about every sport imaginable throughout his career, and has a strong understanding of the Saskatchewan sport scene and those involved in it.

His knowledge of Saskatchewan sport will serve Matthew well especially since he has to “hit the ground running” as we announce the Class of 2019 in less than 2 weeks. We have a very busy summer and fall season planned here at the SSHF and we are look forward to having Matthew as part of our team.

News Update: Staff Changes

Announcing our New Curator

Having received 17 curator applications from across Canada and 2 from Europe, we ended up finding our successful candidate pretty close to home.  Effective April 1st Bryann Seib will take over the position of curator.

Involved with the SSHF since 2017, Bryann continually impressed the interview committee by outperforming the other short-listed candidates through a multi-interview and candidate assignment process.

Bryann’s education includes a BA in Humanities from Briercrest College, alongside courses in support of the Certificate in Community Museums Studies (in progress) through the Museums Association of Saskatchewan.  She will be continuing her education in a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma program in Heritage Resources Management which transfers directly into a Masters of Interdisciplinary Studies while she works at the SSHF.

While familiar with some facets of the SSHF already (such as being team leader for our mobile traveling exhibit tour and several outreach exhibit projects), Bryann still has a lot to learn about the SSHF operations and our 16,000 item collection.  She is definitely up to the challenge!

Welcome to the team, Bryann!

 

Autumn McDowell is Moving On

It is with regret that we announce the pending departure of our Communications Coordinator, Autumn McDowell, on March 22.

Autumn’s next adventure will begin at Evraz Place where she has accepted the position of Marketing & Communication Strategist.  Autumn joined the SSHF in July 2015 and has been an integral part of our growing provincial awareness including the 50th Anniversary celebrations, being named Tourism Saskatchewan’s 2016 Business of the Year (Under 20 Full Time Employees), and the development of our partnership with Global Television (Regina & Saskatoon). The attention paid to our website and social media platforms during her tenure ensures that Autumn has left a strong communications portfolio for her successor to step into.

The board and staff join together in wishing Autumn all the best in her new career and look forward to her continued engagement with the SSHF through social media.

THANK YOU: 2018 Induction

Induction 2018 was a great success thanks to our sponsors, the Class of 2018, our volunteers and the many parade inductees who joined us for the celebrations. Events got underway with numerous family members, friends and media joining us Saturday afternoon at the SSHF for the Inductee Open House. This was an opportunity to grab a few autographs, check out the individual exhibits within Dedication to Sport, and visit with those about to enter the Hall of Fame.

Our formal induction celebrations were hosted at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina, SK as we recognized the contributions and achievements of the Class of 2018 comprising: Kimberly Bergey Kaip (Judo & Wrestling), Lisa Franks (Athletics & Basketball), Johannes “Johnny” Gottselig (Hockey), Robert “Bob” Haver (Rowing), Richard Melville “Dick” Nash (Rodeo), David Pagan (Baseball), and the 1984 Randy Woytowich Mixed Curling Team. To each of the inductees we extend a heartfelt thank you for the privilege of working with you over the past few months. We certainly look forward to having you as part of the Hall of Fame family.

Special thanks are also extended to our Master of Ceremonies, Carlyle Fiset from Global Regina and Saskatoon, who also had the task of moderating a hotstove panel featuring four members of our new Induction Class. This was an opportunity for everyone in attendance to get to know our new inductees a little better, and it turned out to be a highlight of the evening! Thank you as well to all of our sponsors who helped to ensure that the induction events were a great success.

NEW Edition of For The Record: February/March 2018

For The Record

MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT RANKIN JAWORSKI

Spring is always an exciting time for the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (SSHF) as we prepare to announce a new class of inductees for the current year. I am proud to say that the Board has ratified the Inductee Selection Committee’s recommendation for our Class of 2018 and we will soon be announcing the names to the public. I have been fortunate to be part of a number of nomination cycles for the SSHF and am continually reminded of the astounding quality and breadth of elite athletes, coaches, builders and teams that fill Saskatchewan’s history. While I can’t spoil the announcement of this year’s class I’m proud to say it will once again add to the multitude of inspiring stories and achievements enshrined within the hall.

This year’s class announcement also serves as a reminder that there are still a vast array of stories that deserve to be added to the SSHF. From the incredible accomplishments of Hayley Wickenheiser and her 23 years as a member of Canada’s National Women’s hockey team, to the acclaimed career of Wendel Clark or the ongoing history being made by the incredible recovery and head spinning tricks of Mark McMorris. Regardless of the sport, Saskatchewan still has an abundance of incredible stories waiting to join the ranks of those already within the SSHF.

While there are a great deal of names the board and staff can think of who deserve to be recognized within the Hall, we rely on our supporters within the general public to formally nominate those deserving individuals and teams. The process begins by completing the nomination form found on our website. Once submitted, this document will serve as the basis for consideration into the esteemed group that makes up the 512 inductees of the SSHF. As we prepare to announce the Class of 2018 this April now is a great time to begin considering if there is a deserving person you wish to nominate for future classes of inductees ahead of this year’s October 31st deadline. If you have any questions regarding the nomination, selection or induction process please don’t hesitate to contact the staff at sshfm@sasktel.net, they are more than happy to answer any questions.

Diamond Girls Goes Down Under

From performances in small towns throughout Saskatchewan, to the international stage, Diamond Girls has been a home run! As we made preparations for our 50th anniversary, one very unique opportunity presented itself when Menagerie Productions and playwright, Maureen Ulrich, proposed a one-act, one-woman play featuring the Saskatchewan connection to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The leading actress has the challenging task of portraying a whopping 21 characters throughout this one hour performance including three Saskatchewan players, Mary “Bonnie” Baker, Arleene (Johnson) Noga, and Daisy Junor.

After putting on its first performance in June, 2016 we are thrilled to learn that Diamond Girls will be taking on international audiences in 2018! The girls of summer will be traveling to the world’s 2nd largest fringe festival in Adelaide, South Australia in March, 2018! To learn more about Diamond Girls, and their upcoming performances, please visit menageriepro.weebly.com.
