Passing of Two Centennial Students
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we must inform our Centennial College community of a tragic single-vehicle collision near Progress Campus last night that resulted in the deaths of two of our students and serious injury to another.
All three victims are international students with us, and they were staying in our Progress Campus residence over the holiday break. We are presently reaching out to their families and will not be releasing their names until family members have been notified.
There are approximately 250 Centennial students living on campus over the holiday break, many of them too far from home to make the trip. The college is arranging for on-site grief counselling today through our Centre for Accessible Learning and Counselling and through our service partners.
We ask that you keep the families and friends impacted by this tragedy in your thoughts. Let’s continue to move forward with compassion and support for each other.
