Durham College to honour top students at scholarship ceremony

Donor generosity ensures college can recognize academic excellence

November 5, 2007

OSHAWA, Ont. – Durham College will celebrate academic excellence on Thursday, November 8 when college leaders, students, award donors and other guests gather for the Fall Scholarship Ceremony. This year, 178 awards totalling more than $127,000 will be presented to outstanding students in diploma programs at the Oshawa and Whitby campuses.

Among those being honoured with a financial gift are the two students with the highest marks from each of the college’s full-time programs. In addition to a contribution from Durham College, numerous individuals, service organizations and corporate donors have made the awards possible by providing recognition and a welcome financial boost to the college’s academic leaders.

The Ontario Clean Water Agency is the latest addition to the list of generous organizations making a difference for students, joining longtime contributors such as the Canadian Federation of University Women, a donor since 1975; the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, a donor for the last 30 years; A. Alan H. Strike, Certified General Accountants of Ontario and the Optimist Club of Whitby, donors for 15 years; and EllisDon, the Durham College School of Business and the Roger Pardy Memorial Fund, in their fifth years of giving.
