WMU athlete is finalist for humanitarian award

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A Western Michigan University hockey player is scoring many points off the ice. Brett Beebe is one of five finalists for a national hockey humanitarian award. He has raised more than $25,000 for cancer research in honor of his mother, renovated a home for a struggling family in Kalamazoo and created a mentoring program for students in elementary school. Beebe, a senior from Redondo Beach, Calif., says he's in a position to help others as a college athlete. The winner of the BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award will be announced in April at the college hockey championship in Pittsburgh.
