The STC Canada West Coast chapter is excited to announce that seven technical writing students received a 2019 STC student membership award. This is a new record! This is the largest number of applications and recipients yet. This year is also the 40th anniversary of our chapter. Therefore, I think 2019 is going to be a lucky and record setting year for our chapter.
Please join me in giving all our student recipients a warm welcome. Six of the students are taking courses at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and one student is taking courses at Vancouver Community College (VCC). You can learn more about the students and connect with them through LinkedIn: Amanda Lind, Ariana Schuler Ram, Dallas Jeffs, Millie McKinnon, Paige Wergeland, Shannon Loewen, Solange Labbe.
