Medicine Hat College’s (MHC) Board of Governors is currently seeking nominees for this year’s honorary degree.

This award is presented to an individual who has distinguished themselves through exemplary service to the college and region.
This year’s recipient will receive the degree at convocation on June 3 and will be celebrated at the first annual Pathways Gala on June 4.
“We are seeking nominees who are philanthropic, dedicated to our region, and supporters of education and the doors it can open for any individual who pursues it,” says Dr. Denise Henning, president and CEO.
Dr. Henning explains this year’s recipient will have a special experience.
“Convocation and the gala will be the grand finalé to our 50th anniversary. We will be taking this opportunity to not only celebrate our honorary degree recipient but as well our students (past and present), staff, stakeholders and regional communities that have been a part of our first 50 years,” says Dr. Henning. “We are excited to see the nominations put forward by the community.”
