Congratulations to all the Grande Prairie Regional College Graduates of 2020.
As the Elder-in-Residence, I want to take this time to say I am so grateful to have walked with you or crossed your path in the halls of GPRC. It is a great honor to know that with all the knowledge you have gained in your dedication to higher learning at GPRC, you will be the future change makers. You will take that knowledge and make changes not only within yourself but also within your families, communities and greater society.
To all of you "iikaakimat." In our Indigenous language it means never give up, keep going, do your best.
We can't wait for the rest of the celebrations to begin! Join us on Convocation day as we honour the GPRC Class of 2020!
To our 2020 Graduates...
This has been a year like no other, and you are a graduating class like no other.
Perseverance is a trait of the wolf. You have all persevered through many challenges to complete your studies, and we know you will persevere and excel in your future endeavors. It’s in a wolf’s nature to form strong attachments and create a pack, and we know the relationships you have made with staff, instructors and each other will be lasting ones. You will always be part of the wolf-pack here at GPRC.
A unique year calls for a unique celebration, and we are excited to honour the achievements of our 2020 graduates with a virtual Convocation!
Celebrate with Us!
Be part of the celebration starting at 9am on June 26, 2020, as photos and videos are posted on our website and YouTube channel to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates. Graduates and guests are encouraged to participate by taking photos and videos with the special items found in your “Wolf Pack” package. Make sure to tag us in your photos and use the hashtag #GPRCGrads.
Virtual Convocation is open for everyone to attend! Anyone can watch and discover the content as it’s posted on this webpage and our GPRC YouTube channel on June 26, 2020. The videos will remain on our platforms for those who can't watch on the day of.
We are so proud of our #GPRCGrads, and we know you are too! We invite you to read the messages that have been sent, and share your own well wishes for our Class of 2020.
