Recently, Selkirk College brought together 70 screens from across the region for its Virtual Community Celebration. The virtual gathering showcased student talents and gave thanks to the community for ongoing efforts to bolster learner access.

Subbing in for the annual Selkirk College Gala due to pandemic restrictions, students and staff put on an hour-plus showcase of talents featuring the Contemporary Music & Technology Program, Professional Cook Training Program and the Resort & Hotel Management Program.

“Every November we look forward to throwing a big party with our donors and community supporters, so this year we had to find a new way to connect,” says Selkirk College Advancement Coordinator Kelsey Baerg. “Nothing can replace seeing people in-person, but this night was pretty special. Getting to see the faces on screen and having the opportunity to showcase a least a bit of the amazing student talent was a great way to transition into December.”

The annual Gala is an important fundraiser for student scholarships and bursaries.
