50 Years, 50 Stories

Since 1966, Centennial College has been setting students up for success. It's been over 50 years, and in that time, we've seen our share of students become proud Centennial alumni. Here are the stories behind 50 alumni and staff members and how they achieved their successes, both big and small. The meaning of success is different for every person, but all of them share the common theme of working to towards a goal, with the college supporting them every step of the way.
