Message from recipient:

“I am so excited to be a recipient of the Sien Lok Society of Calgary career program award. I just want to say a big thank you for establishing such an award in Bow College. I am in the Practical Nurse program and so excited to soon be a nurse and make a difference in people’s life and the world at large. My future goals are to be a great nurse and to acquire more skills and education to be a Nurse educator. I am from West Africa (Cameroon). I am a Single mother with an awesome 4 year old that gives me hope every day, writing this letter even bring tears into my eyes because of how she has motivated me to work hard and be where I am today. I could not have preferred anywhere else to pursue my career than Bow Valley College because of all the support you give me. I will forever remain grateful even after graduating from the college.
