GPRC is excited to invite the community to celebrate 50 years of meeting the vital need of post-secondary education opportunities in northwestern Alberta.

Join us on the evening of May 27 at GPRC’s Grande Prairie Campus for a night of Celebrating Dreams. Special guests, Spoken Word Artist Shane Koyczan and Dream, Girl Komal Minhas will enchant us as we reflect on how far the college has come, and unite in the power of having a dream of what our college’s future can hold. Guests will also enjoy an art exhibit from Canadian Artist, Alex Janvier.
GPRC is also excited to offer guests the opportunity to reflect on the College’s history with a display of letters, photos and other memorabilia from our 25th Anniversary time capsule.

Carol-Lee Eckhardt, who was the GPRC Foundation Officer during the College’s 25th Anniversary, volunteered to put this treasured piece of GPRC’s history together. It includes a letter Eckhardt wrote to her daughter Emma, 25 years ago and even more interesting a letter 6 year-old Emma wrote to herself.

GPRC will to seal another time capsule and Echkardt is planning to send a new letter to the future. Guests will be able to submit a written note and take a photo at the event photo booth to add to the treasures of our 50th year and be sealed away until GPRC’s 75th Anniversary in 2042.
