Cancarb donates $15,000 to support students at Medicine Hat College

September 19, 2018

Cancarb continues their commitment to students at Medicine Hat College (MHC) with a pledge of $15,000 over five years. The funds will create scholarships for students in the power engineering, business and university transfer science programs.

“It’s always nice to see our students benefit from amazing partnerships like these. Cancarb believes in the power of a post-secondary education and has been supportive of our learners in and out of the classrooms since 1980,” says Jennifer Kerslake, manager of fund development at MHC.

Ross Buchholz, vice-president, quality and development at Cancarb and an alumnus of MHC, believes strongly in the partnership between the college and the local manufacturing company.

“A significant percentage of our employees come from MHC. We have graduates from programs like power engineering, information technology, science and business, so in essence, the college has helped build Cancarb and we appreciate their contribution.”

Buchholz hopes this partnership will remind students about the educational and employment opportunities that exist locally.

“The college gave me some time to grow as a young adult — and that made a big difference before I went on to university. We are fortunate to have a post-secondary institution in Medicine Hat that allows students to complete their education or find their starting point before moving on to other places.”
