Clayton Brad received the Alberta Premier's Council Award of Excellence in Public Awareness.
The award was given out during the International Day of Persons with Disabilities event at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital on Friday (December 1).
Brad has been volunteering or organizing the event for the past five years.
During the event, Neil Pierce, a member of the Premier’s Council on the Status of Person’s with Disabilities, surprised the crowd by giving Brad the award.
“It’s presented to an individual, team or organization that has increased the public awareness of the benefits and value of a barrier free and inclusive community,” said Pierce.
“I’m really happy about that,” said Brad.
Pierce told Fort Saskatchewan that they, “should pat themselves on the back. It’s really a strong community as far as community support goes.”
Fort Saskatchewan mayor Gale Katchur then read the proclamation to declare December 3 as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
Brad has worked with MIX 107 for the past three years.
