Lambton College Receives National Recognition

Lambton College has received national recognition from Big Brothers and Big Sisters Canada.

President Judith Morris accepted the post-secondary partnership award at the Lambton College Event Centre Thursday morning.

“Our agency right here in Sarnia-Lambton nominated us for this award,” says Morris. “I think it’s because of 30 years of great partnership. The partnership has depth and it has quality and I think that’s really significant because what it demonstrates is the work our faculty and staff are doing in training the students.”

Lambton College was selected from 110 agency nominations.

“It’s amazing to be showcased. Again, it speaks to who we are as a college and who we are as a community,” says Morris.

National Vice President of Service and Organizational Development Matthew Chater delivered the scholarship partnership award.

“The national awards program really is an opportunity for Big Brothers and Big Sisters Canada to recognize the outstanding work that’s not only taking place in our member agencies, but also in the partnerships,” says Chater. “We know that the richness of mentoring relationships is not just done solely in isolation with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters agency but in the partnerships that are created in the community.”

The award was presented as part of a community awareness day event.
