Students, faculty and an industry leader honoured at the Prince Albert campus convocation

June 9, 2016 - Tomorrow Saskatchewan Polytechnic will celebrate the accomplishments of over 212 graduates along with award recipients at the Prince Albert campus convocations.

"We attract hard-working, resourceful and innovative students. Our graduates are exceptional," says Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO. "Convocation is a chance to look back on accomplishments and celebrate achievements. I'm proud of this year's graduates and award recipients."
