Tara Levick wants Airdrie to keep that small town feel.

Over the years, she’s noticed the city growing, and has made it her mission to promote a place where people know their neighbours and support each other!

“As we get bigger, it’s important for us to stay grounded and remember what truly matters in life. My husband and I are choosing to raise our family here because we love this community,” Levick says.

“I want my kids to love it here and choose to stay here as well, so anything I can do to make it better is what is close to my heart.”

Levick has volunteered for many organizations, from holding board positions and sitting on committees to helping out at events. This includes the Thumbs Up Foundation, Airdrie Edge Gymnastics Club, 2020 Alberta Winter Games, and the Airdrie Parades Committee. She is always willing to donate a few hours of her time to better serve her community.

Currently, Levick sits on the board for the Children’s Festival Society. When she’s not with her family or volunteering, she’s supporting local businesses in her role as economic development officer with the City of Airdrie.

“Tara’s heart is as big as the water tower – an Airdrie icon she loves!,” nominators Sara Chamberlain and Pete Lewis say.
