County residents honoured at Loyalist’s awards ceremony

Loyalist College has presented 279 awards valued at more than $148,000 during the Annual Undergraduate Awards Ceremony last week. 244 Loyalist students.

Second-year Radio Broadcasting student Benjamin McLean was the recipient of the UCB Canada Award, the Suzanne Meloche Memorial Scholarship and a Hardisty Scholarship.

“As I drove to Loyalist from Kingston, I was thinking about the responsibilities I have as a mature student – family, studies and work,” said Ben. “And then at the awards ceremony, I realized that my life is going really well. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have found a program that combines all of my favourite things and lets me do them every day. I’m proud to be recognized with these three awards.”

“Receiving financial assistance makes a significant difference for many students, helping to set them up for success now and in the future when they graduate,” said Maureen Piercy, Loyalist College President. “We want to say ‘thank you’ to the many donors who have made this evening possible.”

The Loyalist College Foundation provided more than $107,000 of the total, including five new bursaries. The remaining amount is donated by individuals, businesses, and community organizations, with eight new bursaries this year.

“It’s wonderful to see how the awards program has grown year-over-year,” said Tamara Kleinschmidt, Chair of the Loyalist College Board of Governors. “Many of the awards are provided through the College Foundation endowment – an investment which provides important support for Loyalist students today and in the future. I would like to recognize the work of the College Foundation Board, whose members play an important role in this driving this support.”
