After growing up playing competitive sports, Courtney Parks Malcolm sustained a devastating leg injury in 1952 and was unable to continue playing the sports he loved. However, he didn’t let this stop him and went on to give back to the sporting community as a coach, official, administrator, organizer, and developer.
Malcolm has coached many levels of hockey from Pee Wee, Bantam, and Midget, to Junior B and high school. He assisted in the formation of the New Glasgow Track and Field Club and helped in the formation of the Pictou County Twilight Baseball League.
He has served nine years on the board of directors of the MacGregor Kinsmen Midget AAA’ baseball team. Malcolm has also served on many committees including the Atlantic Hostess Cup Pee Wee AAA’ Championship, the Air Canada Cup National Midget AAA’ Championship, and the Under 17 World Hockey Challenge held in New Glasgow and Truro.
Malcolm was inducted into the Pictou County Sport Heritage Hall of Fame in 1992 and, ten years later, in 2002, he received the Queen’s Jubilee Medal.
