A St. Peter Minnesota native and a senior at St. Mary’s University in Winona has been named one of five student-athletes from across all three divisions in the nation to be acknowledged by the Hockey Humanitarian Award Foundation.
Jordan Keeley, goalie on the Cardinal women's hockey team, was recently named a finalist for the 2022 Hockey Humanitarian Award which is presented annually to college hockey's finest citizen — a student-athlete who makes significant contributions not only to his or her team but also to the community-at-large through leadership in volunteerism.
Keeley, a four-year member of the women’s hockey team, has been extremely active in the community.
Her most recent volunteering activities included being the leader of the Saint Mary’s campus Green Bandana Project, which is developing curriculum about mental health meeting leadership.
Keeley also ran and walked 250 miles in 100 days in the summer of 2021 to help raise funds for the Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance.
The 27th recipient of the Hockey Humanitarian Award will be honored in a ceremony on Friday, April 8 as part of the NCAA Men’s Frozen Four weekend in Boston, Mass.
