Community Awards

Each year at RDC's Community Awards, we honour deserving individuals and community partners who have provided meaningful contributions to our learners and communities. This celebratory event provides an opportunity for community members, alumni and distinguished guests to connect with one another, and to celebrate the evening's honourees.

RDC's next Community Awards celebration will be held May 23, 2019. 

Red Deer College honoured three deserving individuals and one community partner at the Community Awards ceremony held on May 16, 2018:

  • Guy Pelletier was awarded the G.H. Dawe Memorial Award for his commitment to community and leadership
  • RDC bestowed the Distinguished Alumna Award to Sharilee Fossum for her personal and professional achievements, as well as public service
  • Linda Slaymaker was posthumously presented with the Alumni Legacy Award, for her contributions to her community and to RDC during her 24-year career working in the College’s Financial Services department.
  • Red Deer College's Community Partner Award was presented to the 2019 Canada Winter Games Host Society, in recognition of its collaboration with the College to strengthen central Alberta, its communities and RDC, now and for future generations
