Congratulations Steve Bayly!
Sholto Shaw of Race and Company together with Heather Paul, the 2017 Whistler Citizen of the Year, presented Steve Bayly, and his dog Roxie, with the 2018 Whistler Citizen of the Year award in front of an audience of 500 at the Whistler Excellence Awards.
The crowd gave Steve a standing ovation for his leadership and the impact he has had on the community.
Without Steve's commitment and perseverance, the Whistler Housing Authority would not have succeeded. Steve has mentored a whole series of young Whistler entrepreneurs. His volunteerism includes the Whistler Adaptive Sports Program, Whistler Blackcomb ski club, and the Advisory Planning Commission. Steve advocates for the underrepresented in our community. He currently serves on the Whistler Development Corp. Board, repurposing the Olympic Athlete Village into affordable resident housing. Finally, he picks up after his dog "Roxie"!
The Community Foundation of Whistler thanks Steve, and nominees Linda Epp and Shelaugh Weightman for their amazing contributions to the community.
We also thank Race and Company for presenting the award and the Whistler Chamber of Commerce for once again doing a great job organizing the Whistler Excellence Awards.
See all the past Whistler Citizen of the Year Recipients.
