VCC Student Awards Fall 2022 recap

Posted on December 12, 2022

Student receives award

On Friday, December 9, VCC hosted the Fall 2022 Student Awards ceremonies. A total of 163 students received awards in the presence of family, friends, and donors. The ceremonies began with an opening prayer and territorial acknowledgment by Elder John Sam of the Odawa First Nation and a welcoming address by VCC President Ajay Patel.

“Many of the award recipients we are honouring have faced adversity and challenges, but persevered and found a way through,” said Patel. “Not only have they found success in their programs, but they’ve also shown leadership in the classroom and in the broader college community. Their accomplishments are nothing short of impressive.”

Each year, VCC Foundation selects one or more Outstanding Student Award recipient to highlight in a video feature. This fall’s spotlight is on Jewellery Art and Design student Janice Thompson, recipient of the Pyrrha Award for Indigenous Students and Corporate Paralegal student Jasmyn Civin, recipient of the Marie Wells Award.

VCC Student Awards would not be possible without the generous support of our many donors.
