CCSAI Board members – advocates Ravneet and Chantal, and athletics representative Miguel – joined the welcoming committee at Toronto Pearson International Airport for Centennial College’s first Syrian refugee to Canada. Centennial has partnered with the World University Service of Canada (wusc.ca) to sponsor one refugee student, which includes a one-year academic scholarship and all additional fees. Centennial has also committed to providing support for 10 refugees for one year of study at the College.

Former CCSAI Board member and now Centennial College Music Industry Arts and Performance graduate, Akeem Kwame Raphael, is featured in the June 23rd Toronto Star newspaper’s Entertainment section for being the first grad with a specialty in rap from Centennial College (click here for the digital version of the article).
He was also featured in the March 2014 issue of the Courier, and in it he said he was inspired by “people who have a passion to turn their dreams into reality”. Well, Akeem Kwame, we see you doing just that and are inspired by you too. Keep following your dreams!
CCSAI Student Advocate Ravneet (carrying the ceremonial staff) and President Davinder were excited to be part of the Convocation ceremonies held at the Athletic and Wellness Centre last week. A proud occasion for all Centennial 2016 grads, including CCSAI’s Athletics Representative Miguel, who is now a graduate of the Community Development Program. The CCSAI wishes all grads the best of success!
A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to CCSAI’s 2015/16 Progress campus director, Brandon Ramdial, on receiving the Centennial College Citizenship Award! This award is giving to students who “have a reputation for mature interpersonal relations with both staff and students, a record of active participation in student activities, good academic standing and a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average.” Way to go, Brandon!
