The Town of Drayton Valley is thrilled to announce the very first community contribution to the Zero Fee Tuition program!
On Wednesday, November 13, 2019, Town Councillors Nancy Dodds and Amila Gammana accepted a cheque in the amount of $3,000 from Weyerhaeuser to contribute to this exciting initiative.
The Zero Fee Tuition program aims to • Create hope and opportunities in education by removing barriers that prevent students from attaining a post-secondary education.
• Provide an alternative to post-secondary education in a big city. Drayton Valley offers a high quality of life with a small town vibe!
• Grow and diversify the local economy by bringing students into the community that provides opportunities for existing businesses as well as entrepreneurs looking to cater to a new customer base.
Programming is set to welcome students in January 2020 for Business Administration and Health Care Aide with 18 domestic students being supported through this initiative!
Thank you, Weyerhaeuser! Your generous contribution to our program is building a world where there are jobs for everyone, and where your children can grow up to be whatever they want to be, a world where tuition is free! This is the world we are building in Drayton Valley! ... See MoreSee Less
