Ron Lavery 
 
This award is named in honor of former ACAC Commissioner Ron Lavery, an ardent advocate of fair play, who passed away while serving his 8th year in office. Ron Lavery was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba November 1, 1927 and was raised in the Knowles School for Boys after the death of his mother in 1936. He was in the Lord Strathcona Horse Tank Regiment and did a tour of duty during the Korean War. While in the army, he was a physical education instructor. On November 18, 1950, Ron married Alice, and their family grew to include a daughter and two sons, and later eight grandchildren. After leaving the army, Ron worked for the City of Calgary Parks and Recreation where he was in charge of all the sports facilities across the city. He later was placed as the manager of the Glenmore Sports Complex. He had an immense interest in sports and athletics and believed strongly in fair play and good sportmanship. Upon retirement from the City of Calgary Recreation Department, he became the Commisioner of Athletics for the ACAC. Ron passed away November 25, 1993 while still serving as Commisioner. His dedication to sport in Alberta and commitment to fair play make it fitting that this award is named in Ron's honor. The ACAC has also honored Ron by presenting the Ladies Golf Trophy in his name.
