    Hall of Fame News: Decades of giving back to the sport she loves

    After more than 50 years volunteering with basketball and wheelchair basketball organizations,
    Maureen Orchard (Class of '15) says she’s got at least as much out of the experience as she’s put in.

    And considering Orchard’s extensive list of contributions, accolades and honours relating to both sports on a global scale, that’s really saying something.

    Orchard, who lives in St. Vital, was recently honoured by the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation with the prestigious Gold Medal Triad award, and the title of honorary secretary general. She was presented with the award and title by current IWBF president Ulf Mehrens at the 2018 Wheelchair Basketball World Championships in Hamburg, Germany.
