Brown was chosen due to her dedication to the community, including volunteering at Dunrovin Park Lodge where she visits with residents one-on-one, plays games and does crafts. She also created the Resident of the Month where she interviews residents about their life. Brown also coaches 7/8 year-old girls soccer, has volunteered as a teen mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Quesnel and volunteers at the Christmas Dinner for the less fortunate. This year it was a difficult choice among the six applicants and Daggitt said all were outstanding and it speaks well for our community with such high-calibre young people.
