A member of the University of Montana Western’s men’s basketball team, Haverfield is honored for his commitment to making Montana Western a better place. As an active supporter in the Dillon Community, he has coached High School Basketball camps, volunteered at the Community Thanksgiving Dinner, and joined the Dillon JayCee’s Park Project.
“Growing up in Dillon, Tanner saw firsthand how supportive this community is. He’s now giving back to others and providing an example for the younger student-athletes on how important it is to give back,” assistant men’s basketball coach Patrick Jensen said. “He is the definition of servant stewardship and how he puts others before himself.”
Haverfield also volunteers with the Elks Club Dinner, YMCA soccer/summer programs, and helps with town clean up by picking up litter and shoveling snow. He plans on graduating from the University of Montana Western in the spring of 2022 with a degree in Ecology.
Haverfield will be honored before the men’s basketball game on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. as the UMW Bulldogs take on the University of Providence Argos.
