Olds College Celebrates Student Excellence, Donor Support at Night of Distinction

March 16, 2017

Olds College proudly welcomed students, award sponsors, donors, and alumni to the Alumni Centre on the evening of March 16, 2017, as we celebrated our annual Night of Distinction. Night of Distinction recognizes student achievements through a number of student awards, as well as donor appreciation for many of our supporters.

3rd Year Agribusiness student Adam Black hosted the evening alongside one of his instructors, Mark Fournier.  The duo showed remarkable chemistry while entertaining the crowd and presenting a number of student awards.

Katrina Wagers - Outstanding Contribution to Olds College Students by a Student

Ag Mech Club – Students’ Association Club of the Year

Phil Waytuck - Ian Hall Outstanding Staff Member Award

Kelsey Franklin – Students’ Association Board of Directors Member of the Year

Brandon Ball – Olds College Alumni Association “Good Samaritan” Award

Students Riley Sharp and Lisa Monague both took the opportunity to reinforce how donors help students and expressed their appreciation to all in attendance, and award donor Frank Dabbs delivered a moving speech on behalf of donors.

The evening was capped off with a cheque presentation from the College to the Olds College Student Emergency Bursary Fund.  The Bursary Fund is in place to assist students who face unexpected financial emergencies and hardships. Funds are raised at the annual Olds College staff Christmas Basket event, where 30 gift baskets were donated and auctioned, for a total of $3 156 raised for the fund.

Congratulations to all of our student award winners, and thank you to all of our donors and supporters that continue to support our students and our programs.
