Night of Appreciation

Night of Appreciation Held to Honour Olds College Donors

Against the backdrop of the new student lounge, The Hive, Olds College donors, students and staff gathered to celebrate the years achievements made possible through the support of partnerships and donations. Donors impact every facet of student life through health and wellness initiatives, providing equipment for hands-on training, growing the Olds College Smart Farm, and through financial student awards and bursaries. 

“It is through the support of our industry partners and donors, that we are able to support student success and achieve our Social Purpose of transforming agriculture for a better world," comments Stuart Cullum, President, Olds College. "We simply couldn't do it without them and I would like to thank all of our donors and partners for investing in Olds College, and our students.

The Night of Appreciation gives Olds College the opportunity to thank donors, while providing donors a chance to learn more about the students who have benefited from their gifts. Equine Science student, Madison Outhwaite, who has received four student awards during her time at Olds College, thanked donors for helping her cover costs associated with living far from her hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. 

“Knowing that there are people who believe in me, and believe in the importance of education enough to provide financial support is humbling, ” comments Madison. "On behalf of all Olds College Students I would like to thank you for donating to Olds College, for investing in education and for investing in us!"
