As the Selkirk College 50th Anniversary celebration year begins to wind down, a new book that chronicles the fascinating history of post-secondary education in rural British Columbia has been released and is now for sale. All proceeds will go towards future student bursaries and scholarships.
Selkirk College was established in 1966 to bring inspiring post-secondary opportunities to rural British Columbia, so it's fitting that the valedictorians for the 50th graduating class are both raised in the West Kootenay. The 50th graduation ceremony is set for this Friday at the Castlegar Campus.
The official end to the 2016-2017 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League season for the Selkirk College Saints took place last week at the Castlegar Golf Club with the annual awards night that featured recognizing outstanding achievements by individual players. It was in academics that the awards were most impressive.
It’s been five decades in the making and on the eve of our historic Grad 2017, Journeys Taken: Selkirk College - The First 50 Years will be available for sale. To mark 50 years of inspiring education in the region, the commemorative coffee table book traces the tremendous legacy that has been built by students, staff and community.
