Alumni Engagement

Distinguished Alumna Dawna Friesen to host RRC’s 2011 Alumni Dinner

August 4, 2011

This just in! Global National Anchor and Executive Editor Dawna Friesen will serve as emcee at the College’s 2011 Alumni Dinner.

Friesen, a 1984 graduate of RRC’s Creative Communications program, will take time out of her busy schedule to host the event, held in part to celebrate the accomplishments of 2011’s Distinguished Alumnus Wayne Morsky. (Friesen herself is a fellow Distinguished Alum, having received the same honour in 2009.)

“It’s a great pleasure to be part of the Alumni Dinner,” says Friesen. “I have such fond memories of Red River College, and am so proud of how it’s thriving, producing the next crop of talent as only Winnipeg can.”

The Alumni Dinner will be held Friday, Nov. 18, 2011, at the Fairmont Winnipeg (One Lombard Place). Tickets are $140 each, or $1,120 for a table of eight. To order tickets, or to learn more about becoming an event sponsor, contact Dale Oughton, RRC’s Alumni Coordinator, at 204-632-2359 or
