Okanagan College Celebrates The First Graduates Of 2016 at Winter Convocation
College celebrates the first graduates of 2016 at Winter Convocation
Crossing the stage this weekend at Okanagan College’s first Convocation ceremony of 2016, 20-year-old Amanda Schuffels from Kelowna will be one of 310 students starting the year on the right foot with a valuable credential to help launch her dream career. Schuffels is graduating from the Water Engineering Technology (WET) diploma program. While classes for the two-and-a-half-year program only ended in December 2015, she’s already hard at work submitting applications and interviewing with local companies in the Okanagan. Born and raised in Kelowna, she hopes to stay close to home, which was a key deciding factor for studying at Okanagan College, along with the quality of education she received.
