CreComm Student Recognized by Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business

December 5, 2012

Red River College student Jamie Mckay has been recognized by the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, with a Shaw Media Award presented by the Foundation for the Advancement of Aboriginal Youth (FAAY).

Mckay, a second-year Creative Communications student at RRC, is one of thousands of Canadian students who’ve received support in the form of FAAY scholarships and bursaries over the years.

A public relations major, Mckay is currently working as an intern at poetry magazine Contemporary Verse 2. Her goal is to use her new skills in the service of a career that allows her to benefit the Aboriginal community.

“I want to spend my life being creative and using my gifts to help others,” Mckay told the CAAB. “Above all, I want to help Aboriginal people — reach them, inspire them, and lift them up so they will be able to do the same.”
