When you see Angela Scoble at community events, (and you do see her at many of them) – she always appears cool, calm and collected. From her demeanor, you’d never guess how many balls she keeps in the air simultaneously. Although she works full-time at Suncor and has two young children who are heavily involved in sports, during her five years living in Fort McMurray, Angela has volunteered for nine (that’s right 9!) organizations including; Fort McMurray Minor Hockey Association, Fort McMurray Minor Baseball Association, Canadian Cancer Society, Junior Achievement of Northern Alberta, Northern Lights Health Foundation’s Festival of Trees, The United Way Suncor Campaign, Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family, Timberlea Public School and of course, Famous 5. Whew!
Angela took her cue from her parents who were always actively involved in the community and has considered volunteering for organizations near and dear to her heart a necessary role in contributing to the community in which she lives.
“Many people have jobs that are important to the economic prosperity of their company and themselves, but I believe most jobs don’t give the emotional satisfaction that comes from giving back to others or to organizations that aide in the betterment for all who live in the community,” says Angela.
Angela quotes American author and historian Edward Everett Hale “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something, and I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
“I try to live this quote every day and reach out to others to help whenever I can”, says Angela.
Nicely put Angela – F5 and the Fort McMurray community have certainly have benefited from your contributions.
