2014 NEC Awards Gala
Vancouver, BC
Saturday, May 31, 2014

Celebrating achievement through culturally relevant education

In 2011, the NEC created a ceremony to recognize the accomplishments of graduates and past board members. On this evening, community patrons are identified to present awards to selected nominees. The gala pays tribute to the best students and most successful alumni, powerfully presenting what is possible when culturally relevant education unlocks human potential. An expected 200 guests will join NEC faculty, staff, students, and community partners for an evening filled with Aboriginal food, entertainment and compelling conversation.

A silent auction raising money for the NEC will showcase some of the best in Aboriginal art and craftsmanship today, alongside a variety of other valuable items. The awards celebrate intergenerational learning, community, and culture while paving the way for a new generation of empowered graduates. Money raised through ticket sales and the silent auction is used to continue to expand the NEC, a peerless provider of culturally relevant education. The impact the NEC makes on the community at large will be shown through the sharing of stories of past graduates and board members.
