RRC honours graduates
Red River College's Portage Campus wrapped up their first year with the Employability Skills Certificate program graduation.
Known as the "Magnificent Seven," the graduating class received their certificates in front of friends and family Wednesday afternoon.
Instructor Bob Turner said the class had been a pleasure to teach.
"This is a unique group," he said. "They are a resilient and fabulous group who have worked hard."
The class started with 15 students, but for one reason or another, only seven remained at the end.
"We started with 15 students and ended with the magnificent seven," said Turner. "I admire them for coming back to school to further their education."
