One of Selkirk College’s top Hairstylist Program graduates has cut, coloured and up-done herself to a successful career in a downtown Vancouver salon. Full of enthusiasm and ambition, she’s just 20 years old. Amber Beckjord graduated from Selkirk College’s Hairstylist Program in 2014 at the age of 17 passionate about all things hair.
Selkirk College has a top quality Business Program and the location to boot. For students like Bryanne Mcelroy, both weighed equally important as she decided where she wanted to pursue her education. The Alberta native came to the West Kootenay to study and snowboard, balancing work and leisure as she strives for success.
The School of Business answered the call to help Selkirk College celebrate its 50th anniversary year with two initiatives that created quite a buzz on campus last semester. At the beginning of the fall semester, the School of Business organized a massive scavenger hunt on the Castlegar Campus.
Mark your calendar – February 14 is Discovery Day, an annual event held at Selkirk College for staff to learn from each other and socially connect. This year’s event is Healthy Campus themed. New on campus this year, Healthy Campus Initiatives aims to support student and staff wellness and create a thriving college community.
