More than 135 scholarships, awards and bursaries totalling more than $155,000 were presented to Assiniboine Community College students at ACC’s 11th annual awards celebration Tuesday evening.

Scholarship and award winners were recognized for academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, community service and leadership skills, while bursaries were presented to help defray financial hardship.

Aly Turnbull, a second-year environmental technologies student in land and water management, is one of this year’s award winners.

Originally from Pipestone, she received five awards totalling $7,125.

"Winning these awards means so much to me," said Turnbull, who is president of the ACC Ambassadors’ Club.

"If it weren’t for these awards, I wouldn’t be able to put in the amount (of) effort to school and volunteering that I want to. I’m able to concentrate on school and not have to worry about how I will pay for rent, food, books and tuition."

The scholarship and bursary fund has been established by individuals, businesses and organizations that have donated money to the Assiniboine Community College Foundation Inc.

More than 70 donors were recognized at the awards celebration. Money from these donations is matched by the Manitoba Scholarships and Bursaries Initiative.

"If it weren’t for the donors who remove some of our financial worries, many students wouldn’t be able to focus on the tasks at hand," Turnbull said.

"The financial support they give us allows us to focus on academics and community and school involvement so we can follow in the footsteps of many other ACC graduates who have gone on to become very successful in their fields."
