Community impact, academic excellence and a passion for learning were all themes of this year’s awards ceremony at Medicine Hat College’s (MHC) Brooks campus on February 5, 2015.
“It was nice to be able to welcome the community to the college. We received great feedback and comments from attendees. They were impressed by the success stories and the links between our students and industry,” says Reg Radke, manager of regional stewardship.
Officials from the college handed out two president and 21 college honour roll certificates, 32 scholarship awards and 10 other accolades.
New this year was the Volunteer of the Year Award through Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE).
“We were especially excited about the addition of this award because ABLE is entirely operated on the backs of the volunteer tutors, so it’s nice to be able to recognize them and their contribution to our students,” says Radke.
Radke also highlights the awards given to students enrolled in continuing studies.
“This year, we continued to recognize two certificate programs through continuing studies- pre-employment welding and hospital clerk,” says Radke. “They are important and valued in our community not only from an employer’s perspective, but because of their flexible style that can accommodate both the personal and financial aspect of our students’ lives.”
