SPRINGHILL – Nova Scotia Community College’s [NSCC] Cumberland Campus celebrated its class of 2013 on Monday during a convocation ceremony with 170 graduates.

Kaili Pipes, a Paralegal Services graduate, was named this year’s Cumberland Campus valedictorian. While at NSCC, Pipes made the most of her student experience serving as a program ambassador and a member of the Student Association executive. She is leaving NSCC as a confident and proud graduate.

“Knowing that you are confident and ready for the workforce is such an empowering feeling,” Pipes said.

Joining the graduates were the college’s first batch of online graduates. Wanda Bickle, Rebecca Caruana and Lisa Fawthrop were part of the college’s pilot program to offer the Licensed Practical Nursing program online. Over the span of three and-a-half years of home study monitored by the college’s Waterfront Campus in Dartmouth, the trio successfully completed the program and attended the Cumberland Campus graduating ceremony.


This year’s major award winners are:

Governor General’s Academic Medal – Jessica Munro, Business Administration – Management

NSCC Board of Governors Award – Kaili Pipes, Paralegal Services

NSCC Foundation Award – Sarah Carter , Business Administration – Management

NSCC Gold Medal – Paul Bunyan, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning – Geothermal

President’s Award – Eric Graham, Electrical Construction and Industrial
