| Olympic Hopeful Gets Lift from OC Donors
Thanks to the generosity of donors to Okanagan College, students are able to gain an education and for some, pursue big dreams at the same time.
Hannah Mehain is one such student. At age 20, she's in her second year of science at Okanagan College’s Vernon campus with the goal of studying medicine or physiotherapy.
She is also an accomplished cross country skier, who just last week made the Canadian World Junior/U23 Championships team.
She will be travelling to Finland in January to compete with the best in the world. After that, her eyes are on the 2022 Winter Olympics.
"If I did not have the financial support from the College I likely would not be able to compete in cross-country skiing at a high level while going to school," says Mehain.
"Having that support, I can devote my time and energy into doing very well at both. It makes a huge difference."
