Humans of High River – Alyssa Briggs & Steve McMasters

You’ve probably seen this new power-couple of High River on the news in the past few weeks.  Their love story went a little viral after the release of their 2018 Christmas card and announcement of engagement.  Alyssa Briggs and Steve McMasters were featured on Global News, The Daily Hive, B-93, Kool FM, Battlefords Now, Lethbridge News and Off Beat Bride to name a few.  These two love-birds have lived in High River for about 7 months.  Steve from Nanton and Alyssa from Calgary met because of Steve’s infamous (and hilarious) Christmas cards.

Catch up on their story here.

So let’s get to know these Humans of High River.

Alyssa has her own company called Rundle Social Solutions and Steve is the Relationship Manager at ATB.  Alyssa says her favourite thing about High River is the kind people and the camaraderie in the community.  She said everyone has made her feel welcome so quickly.  Steve says “I love how resilient High Riverites are. This town has embraced each other after suffering a major disaster and have bounced back with flying colors. My favorite thing about High River is the sense of community and pride this town has.” 

OHR: What do you feel most proud of in your life?

A: My relationship with Steve and what we’ve built’s really cool.

S: I’m proud of all the relationships I’ve been able to create and maintain throughout my life and one in particular who I will marry in June 2020.

(awwww..they are so cute)

OHR: If you could help/change something in High River, what would it be?

A: Events for people in their mid 20’s-30’s.  A gathering place for working professionals.

S: I would like to see a world class cloverleaf for slow pitch tournaments or a new outdoor rink or perhaps upgrade the one on the west side of town. High River has all of the feels of a small town and it does a great job in putting on different activities and events for the community. The ball diamonds could bring in some income to the town especially if they had some camping options attached.

#FunFact on Alyssa – she has learned guitar over the past few years and has a goal to “perform” at an open mic event

#FunFact on Steve – he would like to learn a second language like French or Spanish…or maybe even German.
