The college’s sixth annual Student Achievement Celebration dinner brought together 68 Assiniboine Community College students yesterday evening to honour them for their contributions in academics, athletics and community involvement.

“Participating both inside and outside of the classroom results in a much richer experience for students and forms lasting memories of their time in college for years to come,” said Dr. Deanna Rexe, Vice-president, Academic at Assiniboine. “We are pleased to recognize and celebrate their hard work and accomplishments, in academics, extra-curricular activities, and athletics.”

Thirty-eight students received One to Watch awards. Faculty members select these recipients based on a set of criteria including academic merit, leadership, contributions to student life, community involvement and volunteerism.

Harold “Hulley” Martin, left, was named the One to Watch in Police Studies. He received his award from Sheryl Prouse, Interim Dean of Health and Human Services at Assiniboine Community College.

“I feel very honoured to win this award. It is always nice to receive recognition of one's hard work, and I am truly grateful to be recognized,” said Harold “Hulley” Martin, who won the One to Watch award in Police Studies.

Martin said he was attracted to the program because of its practical nature and the strong career prospects in the field for graduates. 

The program allowed him to “learn by doing,” Assiniboine’s motto, through mock crime scene scenarios in the practical training centre, which includes a furnished house, a car, and other equipment, tools and props to replicate real life situations as closely as possible. 

“During this training, we had radios and handcuffs and would attend crime scenes and active situations just like a real officer on patrol would have to do. Then, we would have to rapidly assess the situation, and respond accordingly to solve the crisis,” Martin said.

In the long term, Martin would like to specialize in the drugs and gangs unit of a police service. “It would be an incredible challenge, but it also would be incredibly rewarding,” he said.

Twenty-five students were recognized with athletic awards, including Theo Bosc being named as Male Athlete of the Year and Jerra Green and Karli Frederick being named the co-Female Athletes of the Year.

A further five awards were presented by the Students’ Association, recognizing students for their leadership and engagement on campus.
