On Friday, May 28, Vancouver Community College (VCC) was proud to celebrate the success, hard work, and achievements of students in a virtual Student Awards ceremony. The event was held on Zoom for donors and recipients, while friends, and family were able to tune in through Facebook Live.

Elder Jean Wasegijig opened the ceremony with a territorial acknowledgment and welcome and was followed by remarks from VCC president and CEO Ajay Patel.  

"Twice a year, Student Awards are given to honour you – our students, for your hard work, commitment and lifelong learning path that you've chosen here. Pursuing a career or learning a new skill or a language during a pandemic is nothing short of remarkable, and I want each and every one of you to know that we are all proud of you." – Ajay Patel

Deans then presented the names and bios of award recipients from the following schools:

  • School of Health Sciences
  • School of Hospitality, Food Studies and Applied Business
  • School of Trades, technology and Design
  • Centre for Continuing Studies
  • School of Instructor Education
  • School of Arts and Sciences

Student Awards video feature

Each year, VCC Foundation selects one or more Outstanding Student Award recipients to highlight in a video feature. This spring, we shined the spotlight on Angela Mawbey, recipient of the Dental Reception Coordinator scholarship, and Beatrice Antica, recipient of the Student Success Team Award for Excellence.

Special music alumni performance

In past virtual ceremonies, a group of VCC Music alumni produce a rendition of classic hits such as Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone. Many thanks to Georges Couling (keyboard, producer, and editor), Jimmy Baldwin (guitar), Catherine Hiltz (bass), Daniel Ruiz (drums), and Elaine Shepherd (vocals) for their interpretation of Ed Sheeran’s Photograph.
