"I decided to partner with AST because I believe in their mission and understand the impact that it can have on individual lives. As a hard working individual and aspiring student with a young family, my financial situation did not permit me the means or the time to attend higher education. While I knew that I wanted to study and that I would excel were I to do so; the financial constraints alone had left me frustrated and with little hope of being able to pursue an education in a foreseeable future. That is until I encountered a program called ´Class Act Canada´ being run by Sprott-Shaw College and spearheaded by Dean Duperron. This program offered an education, to ten individuals, through Sprott-Shaw College, no strings attached.Through hard work and perseverance I was fortunate enough to attain one of these scholarships, and even more fortunate to study with several other amazing individuals who also won.I am now a proud graduate of Sprott-Shaw Degree College and am employed as a Marketing Coordinator with Techtronic Industries Canada.
Partnering with AST in their efforts to provide education to those for whom it is currently out of reach is a privilege for me, because I understand first hand the difference that an education makes, the doors it opens, and the opportunities it creates."
