PROCLAMATION

APRIL 15, 2013 AS JOCELYNE AND MONIQUE LAMOUREUX DAY

 

WHEREAS, Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux helped Team USA capture its fifth gold medal in the past seven years by defeating Canada 3-2 in the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship. It marked the third gold medal in the event for the Lamoureuxs, who were two of the top scorers for the United States; and

WHEREAS, The Lamoureuxs were key parts of Team USA’s 2010 silver medal-winning Olympic hockey team, thrilling fans with their elite speed, stick-handling and teamwork; and

WHEREAS, The Lamoureuxs completed a full class load at the University of North Dakota, during the Olympic year, which enabled them to earn their undergraduate degrees, begin graduate school and be on track to graduate with their Master’s Degrees in 2014; and

WHEREAS, The Lamoureuxs are excellent students, effectively managing their athletics and academics, as evidenced by their perfect grade point averages in Graduate School, and

WHEREAS, In March, the Lamoureuxs completed two of the more storied Division I college hockey careers, leading UND to its second-straight NCAA tournament berth with Jocelyne as the all-time leading scorer in the WCHA, followed by her sister, Monique; and

WHEREAS, The Lamoureuxs have received multiple nominations for the Patty Kazmaier Award for the top NCAA women’s ice hockey player. Jocelyne was a four-time nominee and Monique was nominated for the award three times.

Now, therefore, I, Mayor Michael R. Brown, do proclaim April 15, 2013, as Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux Day in the City of Grand Forks, as recognition of their exceptional skills in sport and accomplishments in the classroom and call on the citizens of Grand Forks to celebrate these exceptional role models for young boys and girls of the community and trailblazers for female athlete everywhere.
