Sergeant Powers: “I have been so fortunate to have found a home within the TNPS and the Tsuut’ina Community; loving every minute of my time here. I am married and have two children; spending most of my time outside of work coaching their teams and attending their sporting events mixed in with their other extracurricular activities. I also enjoy hiking, climbing, volunteering and reading in my spare time.”
