The generosity of donors is never lost on Okanagan College students. The staff of the Okanagan College Foundation sees this first-hand throughout the year as we distribute awards. Recently, we caught up with several students who received awards in Pentiction; and once again, their acknowledgement of our donor's thoughtfulness in supporting their education was truly gratifying.
Penticton resident Sloane More was one of the three recipients of this year's Rick and Yasmin Thorpe and Friends Scholarship awarded by the Okanagan College Foundation. Sloane spoke candidly about the way in which scholarships and awards truly ease the burden of financial stress during studies and allow students to focus instead on classes and achieving their fullest potential.
“Funding should not be a barrier for these deserving students, and we are proud to help facilitate their desire to advance their education and training,” says Yasmin Thorpe.
