“Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s waiting out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” Pema Chodrӧn

When you began studies at Sault College, you were explorers, who were brave enough to enter an educational program, not knowing what to expect. Some of you left home to make this journey and many of you overcame huge challenges to complete the expedition. It is my hope, we have helped you realize your strengths and capitalize on your courage to go out into the world and continue your success.

I wish you all the very best of health and happiness.

Marilyn King, Dean, Health, Community Services & Interdisciplinary Studies

What an incredible time it has been achieving my diploma at Oshki-Wenjack. To all my wise teachers, the most caring and supportive staff, my classmates who are now family and finally my family with a special honor to my two daughters; from the fullness of my heart, Miigwetch. These past two years bought out my gifts and the passion to contribute to the holistic healing of the Anishinabe people. I look forward to continuing my education and finding out what Creator has planned for me next. Miiway
