Morrison was chosen by Mayor Lori Ackerman as the 2014 CITIZEN OF THE YEAR at last night’s Community Awards Gala.
While accepting the award, he told the crowd he felt others in the running, were more deserving.
As you likely already know, though, Morrison wasn’t alone when he got off the plane on Tuesday, bringing with him, fellow teammate Gilmore Junio.
Junio, you may remember, gave up his spot in the one-thousand metre to allow Morrison to race, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Junio, at last night’s Community Awards, was given a certificate of adoption.
The mayor said the community is adopting the Calgary speedskater, as she put it, as ‘one of us.’
