Two special awards were presented Thursday, October 23 during the Northlands College inservice training session, held at the Creighton Community Hall. The Northern Achievement Award for the Eastern Region, from Sask Learning, went to Joanne Lafreniere of Creighton. The $500 scholarship will be used by Joanne to further her education as she continues to reach for her goal of becoming a Conservation Officer. A single mother with three children, Joanne overcame obstacles to complete her Grade 12 at Northlands in June of 2003. "I want my children to see that school does make a big difference in a person's life," she said while accepting her award. "I want them to understand that you can reach your goals and fulfill your dreams. Nothing can stand in your way if you want it bad enough." The Board of Governor's Scholarship Award, and a check for $500, was presented to Clyde McCallum of Sandy Bay. Clyde hopes to own his own construction company some day, and is studying at Northlands College as he strives for this goal. To help enhance his knowledge, he has chosen to enroll in the Introduction to Plumbing and Pipefitting Program that recently began in Creighton. In August of this year, Clyde completed the Housing Maintenance Program which was held in his home community. His instructor said he "was very particular about his work and always tried hard to do the best job possible." Other awards recently announced by the Board and staff of Northlands College include the 2002/2003 Northlands College Scholarship for the Eastern Region. This award went to Patrick Corrigal who is registered at Northlands College in Creighton in the Plumbing Applied Certificate Program. Also, the Board and staff of Northlands College, in conjunction with Saskatchewan Learning and Cameco, are also pleased to announce the recipients of the 2003/2004 Centennial Merit Scholarship.
