On Friday, September 11, 2015 at the Medicine Hat Airport in Medicine Hat, Alberta, instructors from the automotive service technician (AST) and heavy equipment technician (HET) programs at Medicine Hat College donated $1114.00 to Helicopter Air Lift Operation (HALO) Rescue.
The money was raised through a raffle at the 2015 Alberta Instructors Conference in which 100 instructors across the province participated; this event was hosted on campus.
“The timing of this gift is perfect, the college is embarking on its 50th year and we have committed to doing 50 Acts of College in the community,” says Lee Eiserman, AST instructor. “This will just be one of many ways we are giving back to our region.”
The intent of the 50 Acts of College is to complete 50 positive acts throughout the region over the course of the year, with the objective of leaving a lasting impact on communities in the area.
“HALO focuses on providing emergency transportation for people throughout the region, so it aligns with what we are trying to achieve though our initiative. This organization is funded through donations from private individuals and outside partners so we know that they appreciate the support,” says Eiserman.
