MUENSTER, Sask. — St. Peter’s College recently recognized outstanding students at an annual Scholarship and Awards Ceremony Sept. 15.
This year, over $39,000 of scholarships and awards were presented to St. Peter’s College students for their leadership, community involvement and academic excellence.
“We are celebrating our students for their exceptional academic achievements, positive leadership and community involvement. Today’s students are the scholars, leaders, and visionaries of tomorrow and we wish to recognize their contributions at this special event,” said Rob Harasymchuk, president of St. Peter’s College. “Our awards also help to fund the education of those who might otherwise not have had the opportunity.”
The number of scholarships and awards presented at the annual ceremony at college facilities in Muenster, Sask. saw an increase from last year.
Since St. Peter’s College is affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan, some students attending the college have received scholarships from the University of Saskatchewan as well.
St. Peter’s College students begin their university education in arts and science, business/commerce, agriculture and kinesiology, or to fulfil the entry requirements to colleges such as dentistry, medicine, nutrition, pharmacy, nursing, veterinary medicine, law and education.
