Grande Prairie Regional College annually recognizes the outstanding accomplishments and achievements of community members and GPRC alumni by offering our Alumni Recognition Awards. The honorary awards program, established in 2004, celebrates a standard of excellence and innovation which is exemplary within our community.
Join us in celebrating the
2020 Community and Alumni Award Recipients
The GPRC Alumni/Foundation was looking forward to hosting the GPRC Board of Governors, President and CEO Dr. Robert Murray, along with distinguished guests and award recipients at the annual celebration of community. As part of the provincial response to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community, this event was cancelled.
While we missed getting to bring everyone together, we’re still celebrating the achievements of our great community supporters and alumni by announcing the recipients online in the coming days. Follow GPRC on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and connect with us online as we announce the recipients.
As the 2020 recipients are revealed, they’ll be added below and announced on GPRC’s social media channels. Please join us in congratulating our recipients on:
