At this year’s ACC Alumni Awards, four local people in the community are being recognized

The Community Service Award is being presented to Nicole Yunker.

Yunker enjoyed the flexibility that ACC offered her when she went back to school.

“I loved the ACC learning environment; its smaller classes and the instructors are passionate. That had a huge impact on me.  I had returned to school after I had completed a university degree, I was working full time and was able to take my HR in the evenings through continuing education.  So it’s both for young individuals getting their education but also for people who are part way through their careers and wanting to build on their skills.”

She is the Employment Advisor and Team Leader of Parkland Job Opportunity Centre and volunteers with Boxes of Love and C.A.R.E.
