2021 Indigenous Student Awards announced

The  Indigenous Student Awards celebrate the achievements of our Indigenous students at Mohawk College among staff, peers, family, and community. Students are recognized for their leadership, dedication to and involvement in their communities, and their academic and personal success.

“Congratulations to our Indigenous Student Award recipients. These awards honour students who achieve tremendous academic success, and who show a strong commitment to community service through volunteer work and leadership opportunities. While we were unable to celebrate in-person this year, it is important to recognize the exceptional achievements of our students, and to acknowledge the contributions they make to the college and their communities.” – Ron J. McKerlie, Mohawk College President & CEO
