One keeps space mis­sions clean. One helps cleans up the min­ing in­dus­try. One pro­vides com­fort and care to the world’s un­der­priv­i­leged. One helps stu­dents in need. One helps change the way we think about com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

They are all Cam­brian Col­lege alumni and were among the nom­i­nees at the re­cent Premier’s Awards, which rec­og­nize out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to so­ci­ety from grad­u­ates of On­tario’s col­leges.

Cam­brian’s nom­i­nees this year in­cluded:

- Ju­lia Fedec (Nurs­ing, 2011). Fedec has worked as a nurse around the world, in such places as In­dia, Tan­za­nia, Congo, and South Su­dan, de­vel­op­ing ex­per­tise in trop­i­cal dis­ease. She is cur­rently a nurs­ing man­ager at Man­i­toulin Health Cen­tre.

- C.B. For­rest (Jour­nal­ism, 1992). For­rest is the Global Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Re­la­tions for AdFarm. His work with the con­cept of “so­cial fric­tion” is help­ing re­new­able en­ergy com­pa­nies re­think how they com­mu­ni­cate.

- Gianni Grossi (Min­ing En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy, 1999). Grossi is the pres­i­dent of An­mar, a fab­ri­ca­tion com­pany with world­wide op­er­a­tions that is help­ing the min­ing in­dus­try be more ef­fi­cient and en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious.

- Co­lette Lep­age (Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy, 1994). Lep­age works for the North Amer­i­can Space Agency (NASA). She has man­aged the clean­ing and de­con­tam­i­na­tion process for nu­mer­ous space mis­sions.

- Cory Morel (Busi­ness, 2004). Morel is a partner in the Morel Group of Com­pa­nies, a leader in pro­vid­ing health plans and ben­e­fits to post- sec­ondary stu­dents. Morel co-founded the Morel Fam­ily Foun­da­tion, to help chil­dren and youth fac­ing hard­ship.

“I want to con­grat­u­late all of the Cam­brian grad­u­ates who were nom­i­nated this year. They are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the world,” Cam­brian pres­i­dent Bill Best said in a re­lease. “Many of our grad­u­ates are lead­ers in their fields and in their com­mu­ni­ties, and it has been an hon­our to have been a part of their jour­neys to suc­cess.”

“I think the se­cret about Cam­brian Col­lege is out,” added Brandi Braith­waite, di­rec­tor of Alumni and De­vel­op­ment at Cam­brian Col­lege. “We have amaz­ing alumni who are mak­ing their mark on ev­ery cor­ner of the planet, some even be­yond that with or­ga­ni­za­tions like NASA. There are no lim­its to any­one with a col­lege … I’m so proud of all our alumni who were nom­i­nated this year.”

The Premier’s Awards were in­tro­duced in 1992. Since that time, two Cam­brian alumni have won the award: in 1992, Mary Jonik, Ap­plied Arts Cat­e­gory, and in 2002, Martin Bayer, Busi­ness Cat­e­gory.

Cam­brian Col­lege is north­east­ern On­tario’s largest col­lege, with more than 75 pro­grams. Cam­brian’s main cam­pus is in Sud­bury, and with satel­lite cen­tres in Es­panola and Lit­tle Cur­rent. For more in­for­ma­tion about Cam­brian Col­lege, visit www.cam­bri­an­col­lege.ca.
