Oct. 28, 2015 – Lethbridge College announced a $50,000 gift to support student awards today from FortisAlberta during the opening ceremonies of FNMI Days.

The gift will support FNMI students and provide four awards per year of $2,500 each.

“Part of Lethbridge College’s mandate is to create an inclusive environment for our FNMI and non-FNMI learners to enrich the educational experience of the entire student body,” says Lethbridge College President and CEO Paula Burns. “Thanks to the generosity of FortisAlberta, we will be able to make that support available to even more FNMI students in the years ahead. We want education at Lethbridge College to be accessible to everyone with the determination to achieve, regardless of their ability to afford.”

As owner and operator of more than 60 per cent of Alberta’s total electric distribution network and more than 120,000 kilometres of power lines, FortisAlberta’s focus is the safe and reliable delivery of electricity to its 530,000 customers in 200 communities across Alberta. FortisAlberta’s community investment strategy focuses on safety, education, the environment and wellness in the communities we serve.

“Education is your future, you are our future” says FortisAlberta Stakeholder Relations Manager Stan Orlesky. “FortisAlberta is proud to support you, the future leaders of your communities.”

The $50,000 gift is a part of the college’s Possibilities are Endless campaign, an ambitious effort to raise $103 million to support key innovative and essential college initiatives, including student awards. Earlier this month, the college celebrated the allocation of more than $1 million in nearly 900 individual scholarships and bursaries to students at the annual Student Awards evening. Awards from partners like FortisAlberta are essential to enhanced accessibility to post-secondary studies at Lethbridge College.
