Introduction of Guest Speaker - Mike Myndio

We didn’t have to look very far for someone to speak to you today. Dr. Tim Rollingson is currently the Boys Basketball coach at Chinook High School. Before becoming a dentist, basketball was his life.

He is a two time MVP of Southern Alberta 4A league, and a three time 4A league scoring champion. One season he averaged 40.5 points a game, has a single game high point total of 71 points.

Tim played three years for the Alberta basketball juvenile program, making the team first as a 15 year old. He had a try-out for team Canada’s junior men’s basketball team as a 16 year old. There was only one other 16 year old to get a try-out for that team Canada, a player by the name of Steve Nash.

Tim went on to play five years for the University of Lethbridge. He was Canada West: Rookie of the year in 1993, holds the single game scoring record in the 50 year history of the U of L, and he served as Captain on a #1 ranked university team in the country in 1998-1999, a ranking they held for two months.

He has gone on to give back to the game after his career- helping start the Lethbridge Minor Basketball Association, and later acting as its president. He continues his support locally not only with his time but financial support to the U of L, High School’s & Lethbridge Minor Basketball. We are pleased that he has just finished his sixth season as coach at Chinook High School. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Dr. Tim Rollingson.
