Thirty-four students from the Confederation College Dryden and Sioux Lookout Campuses crossed the stage last Friday at the 2016 Convocation Ceremony, to signify and celebrate the completion of their academic programs.

This group joins the over 1500 students who are graduating from Confederation College this year from across northwestern Ontario.

Confederation College President Jim Madder, presided over the ceremonies. “This represents a significant crossroad for our students as they continue on in the pursuit of their dreams,” he said. “We are extremely proud of our students for all that they have accomplished. We wish them continued success as they move forward into the next phase of their individual journeys and remind them that Confederation will always be there to support them.”

Graduate Joseph Millar was the recipient of the Academic Award of Excellence for the Paramedic program and the Campus Award of Excellence for the Dryden Campus. The Campus Award of Excellence for Sioux Lookout went to Jody Belisle, who also was the recipient of the Academic Award of Excellence for the Social Service Worker program at her campus.
