VCC Spring 2019 Student Awards recap

Posted on June 3, 2019

Twice a year, Vancouver Community College (VCC) recognizes and celebrates the academic achievements of many talented, dedicated, and hardworking students from a variety of programs at formal Student Awards ceremonies.

VCC's Spring 2019 Student Awards ceremonies were held on Friday, May 31 at the Broadway campus event space, where 218 scholarships and awards valued at $146,225 were distributed by the VCC Foundation. These awards are given to students who demonstrated excellence both in and out of the classroom. Some award recipients have also experienced significant challenges to pursuing their education. These awards make it possible for these students to complete their studies.

VCC's Student Awards ceremonies offer a chance for the recipients to meet and thank donor representatives in person at tea receptions following both the morning and afternoon ceremonies.

At each Student Awards, the VCC Foundation selects one award recipient and donor to profile in a video. This spring, dental hygiene students Crystal Worrall and Donia Ghassimi Kouraneh were highlighted as the recipients of the Alissa Li Award for their exemplary work ethic, positivity, and diligence. Alissa Li was formerly a student at VCC and returned this year as a donor, recognizing students in her name.
