Student wins tuition money

A Kelowna Secondary School student got more than expected while attending a career fair. 

Braeden Lambert attended Okanagan College’s 36th annual Career Fair to learn more about post-secondary education and won the grand prize of $2,500 tuition credit.

“I want to open my own business one day,” said Lambert. “That’s why I went to Career Fair, to check out the program and its possibilities. I’ve heard good things about the College and the business school and really liked what I saw, so I decided to apply for it on the spot,” he added. 

The College’s Career Fair is one of the Interior’s longest running fairs and has attracted hundreds of students each year. Students were treated to tours, activities, and draw prizes. Anyone who applied for a program at the Fair was entered to win the grand prize.

“It totally took me by surprise when I got the phone call telling me I won the tuition money – I felt like I won the lottery or something,” said Lambert.

“It’s like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders because I don’t have to stress as much about my job or how I’ll pay for tuition – I can just focus on my school now,” he added. 

Lambert is currently completing his final year at K.S.S. and will start classes at the College in September 2018.
