Fleming College Announces Cash for College Winner

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.

Fleming College Opens Doors To The New Cobourg Learning Centre

Fleming College has officially opened the doors of a new educational facility that will attract more students and train more workers in the heart of Northumberland County.

Positioned just outside Cobourg’s downtown core, the Cobourg Learning Centre is a 3,325 square-foot facility located at 609 William St.

The Learning Centre will host Fleming’s established programs like Academic Upgrading, Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada, Corporate Training and continuing education classes. 

“Programs like these are the bedrock for developing and maintaining a viable, skilled workforce in the Northumberland community,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “Fleming has had a presence in Cobourg for many years, and we are delighted to maintain that presence and be an important part of the catchment area for Cobourg and Northumberland for years to come.”
