Just over 350 students received their diplomas and certificates, while celebrating the support they've received during their academic journeys.
Virginia Michael, a graduate of the Tourism Management program, was valedictorian. Michael is a two-time NSCC graduate, completing the Adult Learning Program in 2010 before beginning Tourism Management, offered in collaboration with Millbrook First Nation.
"My experience at NSCC is something I will never forget," said Michael, who credits her time in ALP with helping her become who she is today. "It feels great to be a positive role model for my children and my community."
After graduation, she plans to bring her knowledge and skills to her work at the Indian Brook band office and as a community volunteer.
