The college's Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for this year’s Parkland Region Alumni Awards, which will be presented on April 6, 2017, at the annual Alumni Awards Celebration Dinner in Dauphin, Manitoba.

“The annual Parkland Region Alumni Celebration is a great opportunity to recognize outstanding alumni in our community,” said Erin Sigvaldason, chair of the Parkland Region Alumni Committee and a 2001 graduate of the Business Administration program at the college’s Parkland Campus. 

“The dinner provides an evening to bring together college alumni, staff, family and friends to honour and celebrate the achievements of the award recipients and to hear their stories.”

There are four awards that will be presented at this year’s event:

Distinguished Alumni — presented to an alumnus from the Parkland region who has distinguished themselves in both their chosen profession and their community.

Community Service — recognizes an alumnus from the Parkland region who has positively impacted the quality of people’s lives through the service of others.

One to Watch — honours an Assiniboine graduate from the Parkland region who is 30 years of age or younger at the time of nomination and has made exceptional achievements and significant contributions to his or her profession and/or community.

Excellence in Teaching — honours an Assiniboine faculty member from the Parkland Campus for extraordinary contributions to teaching and the student experience.

Deadline for nominations is February 21, 2017. For more information and for nomination forms, visit assiniboine.net/alumni or email alumni@assiniboine.net.
