Sarah Novalinga is a 2nd Year Jewellery and Metalwork student at Nunavut Arctic College. Last year, she won the Bank of Montreal First! Art Invitational Students Art Competition. This fall she will be flown to Toronto to accept her award and prize of $1,500.
Three students have received the Al Woodhouse Bursary. The bursary was established in memory of Al Woodhouse, a long-time resident of Nunavut and a supporter of science and research. The recipients were Parniga Thibaudeau, Sherry Parks, and Tamara Ohokannoak.
The Board of Directors of Ilagiiktut Limited have established an annual award to the Nunavut Arctic College Management Studies Program in the amount of $1,500. The award will be made to the NLCA Beneficiary who attains the highest academic standing in the Management Studies Program during the academic year.
In addition to coming to work at Nunavut Arctic College, one of the highlights of my nursing career was being selected to participate in the Stop Transmission of Polio (STOP) program.
When Daniel Vandermeulen took over as the new college president in 2007, I was probably not the only one who wondered what kind of impact the change in leadership might have on my position. I didn’t have to wait long to find out, because a couple of months after he took over I was approached about his request to see a library collection in each of NAC’s Community Learning Centres.
