President's Gala

President's Gala

On June 3, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Auto Body Technician training area at the Regina campus was transformed into a one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment spot. Guests were treated to a champagne reception, fine food, and great entertainment, and helped us celebrate the recipients of the 2017 President’s Partnership Awards

The funds raised through the gala support Sask Polytech’s Aboriginal Student Achievement Plan (ASAP).  ASAP provides support and services for Indigenous students from the point of thinking about coming to Sask Polytech through to graduation and employment.

Gala guests helped Sask Polytech celebrate the partnerships that are critical to the success of Sask Polytech students and graduates. The Saskatchewan Polytechnic President's Partnership Awards for outstanding contributions in the categories of Program, Alumni, Industry and Young Alumnus partnerships were presented.

The 2017 recipients of the Sask Polytech President's Partnership Awards are:

Alumni Partnership Award - George Pohorelic

Industry Partnership Award - Spartan Controls 

Program Partnership Award - Gillian Oberndorfer

Young Alumnus Partnership Award – Chantel Buffalo

Many thanks to the sponsors who helped make this annual event possible.
