A Fleming College student received a big surprise during one of her classes earlier this week.
Fleming President Maureen Adamson surprised Practical Nursing student Kelly Cairns mid-class to tell her she was the winner of Fleming’s Cash for College contest, presenting Kelly with a cheque for $5,000.
“This was such a great surprise,” Kelly said. “I am grateful to have won.”
Cash for College was open to any full-time domestic student who enrolled at Fleming for the Fall 2022 semester.
Cash for College is open to students who have already confirmed their attendance at Fleming for the Fall 2023 semester.
The contest is one of many ways Fleming College helps financially support students. Students in financial need can access up to $2 million in bursaries and scholarships each year.
