Award description

The purpose of this gift shall be to recognize a domestic student in the School of Access who has demonstrated exceptional commitment to set out in a new direction for the benefit of themselves and their family. The student will have taken the decision to reset their future by going back to school to qualify for work that will give them future financial security; demonstrated their determination to succeed on their new path and to overcome barriers to their success; and exhibited the ability, curiosity and passion for a lifetime commitment to continuous learning and improvement. Priority given to single parent(s).

This Fund was established by the Brand Family and Friends in honour of Shirley “Max” Brand, a single Mother of five, who went back to high school at the age of 40 and got extra credits in Algebra, Trigonometry, Chemistry and Biology in order to take the Medical Lab Technology course and reset the future for her and her kids. She went on to graduate at the top of her class as a Lab Tech. We are very proud of the courage and determination Max displayed. She is a role model for all of us.
