Myrtle Patrick, centre, receives a $500 bursary from Christy Smith, right, of the North Central branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining (CIM). Patrick won the award for her dedication as a student in CNC’s Mining program at the Vanderhoof campus.
Also in the photo is Brent Marshall, owner of Northland Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Prince George, who presented the CIM with $5,000 for its endowment fund. In December, CIM donated $30,000 to an endowment fund at CNC to support those students interested in a career in mining. Awards were also given to Joe Sinclair from Fort St. James, Kim Jones from Mackenzie and Gerald Whitford from Burns Lake, who were working and could not attend the event.
CNC’s mining certificate program has been successfully delivered at the Fort St. James and Burns Lake campuses, with more than 80% of graduates earning jobs.
