The morning ceremony, which began at 10 a.m., honoured graduates from human services, environmental sciences, fire and emergency services, and trades and technology programs. The afternoon ceremony began at 2:30 and was dedicated to graduates from the agricultural sciences programs.

In total, approximately 450 candidates from degree, diploma, and certificate programs at the Vermilion campus were recognized during the celebrations, with another 170 celebrated at the Lloydminster campus’ ceremony on May 31.

Lakeland recognized Distinguished Citizen as Cree Elder Leona Carter and Distinguished Alumni as rodeo star Scott Guenthner, as well as six second-generation and three third-generation Lakeland graduates.

The President’s Medal was awarded to agribusiness diploma student Kyla Krahn for the excellence she demonstrated in academics and leadership in student activities.

Madeleine Hayes, a graduate of the child and youth care counsellor diploma program, was honoured with the Governor General Medal for graduating with the campus’ top grade point average (GPA).

Loved ones were on site or attending remotely via livestream to show support for the graduating students.
