Over 30 students from the Kenora campus of Confederation College crossed the stage on Monday at the 2018 Convocation Ceremony, to signify and celebrate the completion of their academic programs. Three graduates from the Red Lake campus were also recognized.
"We are extremely proud of our students for all that they have accomplished,” said Confederation College President Jim Madder.
“We wish them continued success as they move forward into the next phase of their individual journeys and remind them that Confederation will always be there to support them."
Eighteen graduates held their heads as they walked across the stage to receive their diploma from Confederation College yesterday in Dryden.
“My generation has experienced many exciting changes,” said Dryden city councilor Norm Bush. “Computers, the internet, landing on the moon, and many other things. Your future is even more exciting, and it starts today.”
“We are very pleased that you were able to take these courses right here in Dryden. We’re very fortunate,” added Bush.
Local graduates join the over 1400 students graduating from Confederation College this year from across northwestern Ontario. Confederation College was pleased to exceed an important milestone of 50,000 alumni this year, hosting its 50th round of Convocation ceremonies.
"A particularly exciting year for us having exceeded 50,000 alumni, this ceremony represents a significant crossroad for our students as they continue on in the pursuit of their dreams," added Madder.
