Alberta rancher recognized for community volunteerism

Miles Wowk receives Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pin from Member of Parliament Shannon Stubbs.

One Alberta rancher’s dedication to giving back was recently recognized with a special honour.

Miles Wowk, who ranches at Beauvallon, AB, received the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pin for his long-time commitment to charity fundraising in his community.

“There are no words that can truly explain how vital a volunteer is to the success and sustainability of communities,” said Shannon Stubbs, Member of Parliament for Lakeland, who presented this honour to Wowk and other local recipients at a ceremony in Two Hills, AB.

“These men and women were identified through community outreach as individuals who have made outstanding volunteer impacts.”

Wowk is active in fundraising through charity auctions for a range of organizations in his area, including the Sturgeon Community Hospital Foundation, Vegreville Rotary Club, University of Alberta, Ducks Unlimited, schools, and 4-H livestock sales.

As well, Wowk has served as an Alberta delegate with the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA) for six years and currently chairs CCA’s Animal Health and Care Committee.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal program celebrates those who have made meaningful contributions to Alberta. This year, to honour Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th anniversary, 7,000 Albertans will receive this award, and the program with continue throughout 2022 despite the Queen’s death in September.
