Conestoga celebrates class of 2022

More than 6,200 new graduates will be recognized at Conestoga’s spring convocation beginning June 16. The event is a culmination of hard work, passion and commitment in celebration of academic achievements.  

“It is an honour to recognize the achievements of our newest graduates,” said Conestoga President John Tibbits. “Across the community and around the world, Conestoga graduates are known for their talent, drive and entrepreneurial spirit. They are innovative thinkers with the training and knowledge to solve some of the greatest challenges we face. They make a difference.”

In conjunction with the celebration, the Conestoga community will also recognize college-wide achievement with the James W. Church award.

The award will be presented to Oladipupo (Daniel) Ajiroba, graduating from the Bachelor of Environmental Public Health (Honours) program. Established by Conestoga’s founding president, the James W. Church award recognizes excellence in a combination of areas: achievement in learning, concern for the dignity of the individual and a personal contribution of benefit to society. Ajiroba has continuously demonstrated initiative, compassion for others, and passion for social justice through activities that positively contribute to society, including volunteer work with diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives at the college and in the local community.

The pre-recorded virtual celebration will be available to access at any time after 2:00 p.m. on June 16.
