It brings us a lot of joy to share this news with you, PembinaValleyOnline and Golden West Sports Director Clayton Dreger has been named the South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League's Dale Rempel Award winner as its Person of the Year for the 2023-24 season

The Award recognizes individuals who have made a significant positive impact in the South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League (SEMHL) and their community. Clayton started with CFAM Radio 950 in January 1985, was on the broadcast crew for SEMHL Saturday night games and playoff games from the late 1980's to the mid 1990's. He's also helped the league celebrate its 40th, 50th, 60th & 70th anniversary seasons!

His weekly SEMHL interviews on PembinaValleyOnline have allowed fans to gain insight into what teams are up to, and the stories behind every goal and game.

There are few people in the broadcasting industry who have shown the dedication and passion for local sports like Clayton has, for as long as he has... which is nearly 40 years, by the way.

We're thrilled to highlight his continued commitment to Connecting Communities. Congratulations Clayton!
