Honorary Credential for Distinguished Citizens
Lakeland College presented its first honorary credential in 2006. There was a gap of 4 years before an honorary credential was presented for the second time.
In 2013 the first of our distinguished citizens were recognized on both campuses. Canadian Olympian Beckie Scott and long-time federal politician Don Mazankowski were recognized on the Vermilion and Lloydminster campuses respectively.
Since then every Lakeland convocation features a distinguished citizen who receives their honorary credential and also addresses the graduates and audience.
Plaques of each distinguished citizen are displayed on both campuses.
Nominations for 2022 awards open August 1, 2021. Nominate someone for an honorary credential
