Daren Vance and Shirley Cole Award

Overview

Daren was born April 22, 1976. Several hours after he was born he stopped breathing and was resuscitated via incubation. When he was just 22 months old, he was diagnosed as significantly mentally delayed at Sick Children’s Hospital in Toronto. At that time the family physician had no idea where we could access support services. The Home Health Care Nurse attending our new born son Jeff advised us that Infant Stimulation Programs existed through the Sudbury Association for Community Living. After accessing services and participating as Board members and in parent groups, Shirley Cole introduced herself to us at a Conference hosted by SDACL in Sudbury. At that time Daren was on a waiting list for “Specialized Foster Care” and Shirley, who knew our son through day care and respite care programs indicated she was a foster parent and wanted Daren once his turn came up. For a couple of years Shirley was our sole relief worker and eventually Daren was able to be part of the Specialized Foster Care Program. The rest is a twenty-year history of love and care for our son by our Guardian Angel, Shirley Cole.

Dr. John T. Koski "Second Chance" Memorial Scholarship

Overview

The family of Dr. John T. Koski established this scholarship to commemorate his life experience. Koski found his “second chance” opportunity in 1943, when, as an 18-year-old grade 11 drop-out, he enlisted in the RCAF where he was trained as a Flying Officer. The son of Polish immigrants living in Kirkland Lake, Koski used his veterans’ benefits to earn a senior matriculation and complete a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in electrical engineering at the University of Toronto. The British government awarded him the prestigious Athlone Fellowship, which financed his post-graduate studies in electrical engineering at the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London. In 1952, he became a teacher at the Provincial Institute of Trades in Toronto, and in 1953 he began working at Ryerson, teaching in the electrical engineering technology department. He was appointed department chairman in 1958. In 1962, Education Minister William Davis appointed him to found, as principal, The Northern Ontario Institute of Technology in Kirkland Lake. Within five years the new Institute of Technology had become successful and formed one of the two nuclei for Northern College. On March 1, 1967, Koski assumed his new position as the founding president of Cambrian College, with a mandate to establish three campuses in Sudbury, Sault St. Marie, and North Bay. By 1972, each campus had developed into a fully-functioning college. Koski argued successfully to the government that each campus should become a separate and independent college. The Sault campus became Sault College, the North Bay campus became Canadore College, while the Sudbury campus remained Cambrian College, which Koski built into the largest postsecondary institution in northern Ontario over the next several years. In 1980, Laurentian University conferred on him an honorary doctorate in recognition of his leadership role in the development of postsecondary education in northern Ontario. He took early retirement in 1982. During his 30-year career as an educator, Koski provided leadership within the provincial and national postsecondary systems. He served as chairman of the provincial Committee of Presidents and as President of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges. On behalf of all Ontario colleges, he negotiated the first collective agreement with employee groups. When he died in 2003, the Honourable William Davis said of him: “In a province that prides itself in providing equality of educational opportunity, it is essential that we develop sound programs at all levels, in all regions of the province. No one has done more to provide such leadership than John Koski. His contribution initially in the Ministry, then at the Northern Ontario Institute of Technology, and for 21 years at Cambrian College, has been outstanding. We sometimes think of someone as being “a gentleman and a scholar.” John Koski was that and much more, and will be remembered as such.” John Koski’s remarkable career would not have been possible if he had not been allowed his own “second chance” at the age of eighteen. This is why his family and friends have established this scholarship, to honour his achievements and continue his lifelong commitment to providing educational opportunities to individuals who, like himself, need a “second chance” to realize their potential.

Eligibility

Available to a Cambrian College student enrolled in their first year of any full-time certificate or diploma program. A "second chance" applicant for this scholarship is defined as a person of any age, who has chosen to interrupt his/her education on, or before graduating from an Ontario secondary school for at least one year, and who now chooses to enroll in a full time entry level program, including academic upgrading. Persons with college certificates, diplomas, or degrees, or university degrees, are not eligible.

Jim Harling Memorial Bursary

Overview

Jim Harling was born in England in 1906. The family immigrated to Canada in 1912. In 1929, he started work as an underground helper at the great Lake Shore Gold Mine in Kirkland Lake. At about 1947, he moved from underground work to the geology office as grade-control man, eventually becoming a Chief Geologist near the time of Lake Shore’s closing. Jim Harling has been a resource person for a number of writers about the early days of gold mining. One of Jim Harling’s notable projects was researching and presenting information on rock bursts in the Kirkland Lake mining camp. In 1968, he was awarded the status of Professional Engineer, on the basis of his successful experience in the field. He was involved with many community activities over the years centered on arts and crafts. Jim was also the founding member of the Kirkland Lake Arts and Letters Club in 1944. He himself painted in oils at the time. His pen and ink drawings of Kirkland Lake’s mine head frames have been used widely in promotion of the town. Jim was an associate of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. James Harling died on November 22, 1995, at the age of 90.

Ken Jacklin Memorial Bursary

Overview

Ken Jacklin was a life resident of the City of Sudbury, having grown up in the Lo-Ellen Park area as a youth in the 1950’s and 60’s. Ken attended the Hailibury School of Mines where he graduated with a Mining Technologist Diploma in 1966 and soon after graduating started his Mining Career with INCO (now known as Vale). Ken began as a surveyor both on ground and underground and quickly moved up in to the Mine Planning department at Creighton Mine where he spent his entire 42 year career planning and developing the deepest Nickel Mine in Canada. Ken was responsible for some ingenious designs to control underground water, blasting of stopes and his biggest projects revolved around the refurbishing of the Mine Shaft during the shutdown period. Upon his retirement in 1999, Ken went on to consult with local mining companies, where his skill and expertise were instrumental in winning contracts for the contractor. In 2001, Ken fully retired and dedicated his remaining years as a devoted husband, father and grandfather of 6. Ken passed in 2015 leaving a legacy of hard work, dedication, commitment, loyalty and the desire to achieve at the highest level. Steve Jacklin is the son of Ken Jacklin and is responsible for initiating this bursary in honor of his father. Steve, unlike his father, took a different direction in life than his father. Having grown up in the town of Lively, Steve went on to pursue and education in Business. Graduating from the Business Administration course with a major in Business Management in 1999, Steve went on to a career in car sales, somewhat by accident, but soon got the “Car Business Bug”!. Steve spent 15 years at Sudbury’s Crosstown Chevrolet having roles as Sales Professional, Business Manager, Portfolio Manager, Used Car Manager, New Car Manager and General Sales Manager. Steve learnt all aspects of the car business while working for and with some of the finest people in the industry. In early 2012, Steve an opportunity to become partners in a GM Dealership in Midland Ontario, making the successful leap from employee to employer. Steve had a young family at the time and put it “all on the line” when he moved his family to a place he had not even visited, with his wife and daughters supporting his “dream” of owning his own business, completely. Over the course of the next 5 years, Steve was able to build a “Team” of professionals and grew the business 3 times its original size. Today, Steve is a partner in two Car Dealerships and owns multiple businesses. Steve's two dealerships employ approximately 70 people with combined annual sales in excess of 50 million dollars. Two bursaries have been established to reflect both Ken and Steve’s passion – Mining and Business. Steve would not have been able to achieve the success he has, without the guidance from his father Ken. The successful individuals that receive these two bursaries should demonstrate the characteristics Steve inherited from his father… 1. Hard work – the harder you work, the luckier you’ll get 2. Stick-to-it-ness – don’t go running when things get difficult 3. Leadership – you can be a leader no matter what role you are in

Louise and Rene St. Jacques Memorial Bursary

Overview

Louise St. Jacques set out on her journey at age 43 after raising eight children, and enrolled in Cambrian College’s Registered Nursing program. In 1978, the final year of her program, Louise was diagnosed with breast cancer. Following many months of aggressive treatment, Louise’s cancer went into remission. She was able to resume her studies and graduated later that year. Not only proving to be a dedicated and caring nurse in the Special Surgery and Intensive Care Units at the Sudbury General Hospital, Louise was also an instrumental volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society. Rene continued selflessly championing Louise, resolute with his support, love, and undying devotion until her passing in 1989. Rene and his children established the Louise St. Jacques Memorial Bursary to honour her memory and her love of nursing. This bursary serves to acknowledge the efforts of future students who are faced with similar challenges. When Rene passed away suddenly in May 2007, it seemed fitting that his name be joined together with Louise’s in the same bursary that was established to support and inspire mature nursing students, with the dogged determination, strength, and will that both he and Louise had exemplified during their lifetime. The St. Jacques family is proud to honour the memory of their parents and their enduring spirit, with the Louise and Rene St. Jacques Memorial Bursary. They hope that their parents will be remembered in a way that offers some token assistance and recognition to a struggling Nursing student.

National Lodge 588 Bursary

Overview

Masonic lodges are fraternal organizations with the purpose of making good men better. February 13th, 1919 a number of businesses and railroad men met at Rossman's hall to discuss ways and means towards starting a lodge of free and accepted Masons in Capreol. Subsequent meetings followed, when it was decided to go ahead with a building with stores below for rental and the masonic hall above. For this purpose, a stock company was formed and was known as "National Temple Company." A petition was signed by a number of Masons and submitted to the Grand Lodge of Canada in the province of Ontario, praying for a dispensation. On September 7, 1922, R. W. Bro. J. A. Smith, assisted by Grand Lodge officers from North Bay and Sudbury performed the ceremonies of: constituting, consecrating, & dedicating national lodge # 588. For a number of years the lodge grew and had a membership total of 191 until the mine closure and railway cuts in the late 1990’s. Unable to survive on its own, the lodge moved into the Belrock Masonic Centre, Sudbury. Declining numbers continued to plague the lodge and recently a notice of motion was presented to “go dark”. One of the last items for the lodge was to start a legacy project to help the postsecondary students of the district. R. W. Bro. Jordan asked if everyone present was in favour of the masonic bursary at Cambrian College / Laurentian University for students from Capreol and the valley with a railroad and / or masonic connection. The interest would be used every year and this will live on in perpetuity. The brethren at the meeting were pleased with the suggestion, and it was decided in favour of a bursary for a Cambrian College student in financial need.

Steve Loebach Memorial Award

Overview

Steve Loebach began at Cambrian College in 2010 after learning about the Millwright program. He had completed a year of instrumentation engineering at another college, but found that it wasn’t for him; in fact, the joke was that the binds in his books weren’t even cracked. Steve’s father wondered if he would be picking Steve up a few weeks after he started Cambrian, but by the time Thanksgiving came around, Steve was flourishing and told his family that one of his professors was the best welder in the country! Steve was an incredibly smart and technically-minded individual. He could fix anything, and solve any mechanical problem. Throughout his time at Cambrian, Steve excelled in his courses. He ended up tutoring some of his classmates and earning a co-op placement, followed by an apprenticeship at Vale. Steve’s work ethic was exceptional and it showed in his time at Cambrian, Vale, and his various recreational projects. He had found his passion, and much of it was because of the talented professors at Cambrian College. Steve had a love for the outdoors – he spent much of his free time hunting and fishing. When he would travel home to Goderich, Ontario to visit his parents and two sisters he would always be outside fixing something. He had a beloved dog, Tucker, who was always by his side. Steve passed away tragically on May 22, 2015, in an ATV accident. He had finished his apprenticeship hour requirement just two weeks earlier. The Steve Loebach Memorial Award recognizes achievement and work ethic in Cambrian’s current millwright students, as Cambrian is the place that brought out the best in Steve and showed his passion for the trades.

Eligibility

Available to a full-time Cambrian College student in the Industrial Mechanical Millwright program who has demonstrated exceptional work ethic in the classroom, supported by a faculty reference letter. The student must submit a 200 word overview on why they decided to study in the Millwright Program and what they enjoy about the program. Preference given to a student from Huron County.

The Vianet CETY Award - In Memory of Nicole Michaud

Overview

The Vianet CETY Award – Presented in memory of Nicole Michaud . Vianet is a telecommunications company based in Sudbury Ontario. With 50,000 business and residential customers, 10 offices and 150 staff located throughout Ontario, Vianet relies on a core group of network engineers and technicians to manage one of the largest private communication networks in Ontario. Many of those key employees are graduates of the CETY program at Cambrian College. Nicole (Nicky) Michaud worked for Vianet for 16 years. She started her career with Vianet at the age of 41 and passed away in December, 2018. Although she started her career with Vianet later in life, she left an indelible mark on all she touched. Many of the CETY students who are with Vianet today started their work life under Nicky’s tutelage. Nicky was the ultimate instructor, combining patience, empathy and caring for her recruits with her own passion to provide the best possible service to every customer. Her quiet leadership shone through by example – she was always the first to help in any company event and to assist and advocate for anyone who needed help. Vianet is honoured to be able to present this award to a CETY student who best exemplifies the shining characteristics of Nicky – joy for life, compassion for others, determination to do one’s best, loyalty to friends and family. Remembering Nicky: It was Thursday, November 29, 2018. Nicky came down to my office at the end of her shift. She had a few minutes to spare until Gary would pick her up. But she wasn’t there to pass time – she was excited about a new project that our TV group was working on. She knew that the next day there would be some discussion on the project (over our last Friday of the month pizza). She had done some testing of the product, was excited about its potential and wanted to provide her input. The next day, she was an active participant in the discussion; she was happy, vibrant, engaged – she was the Nicky we all knew. Her input into the project was valued. Also, while the rest of us were gorging ourselves on pizza, Nicky was having her salad. For a considerable time, Nicky had been very conscious of her health, making sure she ate well and got her exercise. Nicky had so much to live for and she was determined that she be fit to experience it. That was the last time I was to see that Nicky. But that will be the Nicky that I will remember. The Nicky who was happy, vibrant and engaged. The Nicky who was kind, compassionate and caring. The Nicky who acted as a mentor, a guide and a support for the many young people who began their Vianet work life in her department. The Nicky who was called in from a temp agency to do some filing and then heard a phone ring and asked “Can I answer that call?” The Nicky who then went on to answer thousands of calls. The Nicky who took a one person tech support reception position and turned it into a department that answered thousands of calls per month. The Nicky who would volunteer to help in any special company event. The Nicky who become a valued member of the Vianet management team. I could go on and on and on. Nicky contributed so much to Vianet, she contributed so much to her fellow workers. We feel that memories of Nicky are worth sharing in a more formal way. Nicky had a wonderful relationship with the staff at Cambrian and many Cambrian students’ first work experience at Vianet was under Nicky’s tutelage. We have asked that the award be presented to the student who best exemplifies the many characteristics that made Nicky special.

Eligibility
