2022 Access Communications Doug Alexander Scholarship Recipients

I volunteer because it has a significant impact on my school and community, no matter how big or small the contribution may be. Everyone should have a fair chance at success, so giving to the less fortunate is especially important to me.

Volunteering is a big part of small town living. Without it, many activities just wouldn't happen. All it takes is that one person's ideas to bring a club or team back to life again!

Jaspyn Campbell, Yorkton

Volunteering throughout my life has given me experiences and knowledge that I would not have been able to enjoy. I have learned a lot from being a volunteer. I became familiar with community organizations and their purposes. I have a greater understanding of volunteering and its importance.

I volunteer because I love to give back to the community that has given so much to me.

I am proud that I am actively involved and have a positive impact on my home town.

Everyone in this community is so welcoming and helpful, it only made sense that as I grew up I gave back to my community and volunteered in as many ways as I could. I hope that my volunteering can make a positive impact on my community and maybe even encourage other young kids to get themselves out there and volunteer in the community.

Life is a fast-paced world, and I want to spend every single day to its fullest potential. Hence, I work to achieve my aspirations. I recognize my community work as an action that must be taken by the future of this generation.

2021 University of Regina Recipients

Matthew Degenhardt

The generosity of the Access Communications Scholarship program has allowed me to focus less on what’s in my wallet and more on what’s in my textbook. To be recognized by such an innovative, community-driven organization makes me proud of my accomplishments and hopeful to one day reflect those same values in my career.

Dev Panchal

Although I didn’t get the chance to have a full university experience, the past year has been simply amazing. I have learned so many new things about film studies and film-making, and I am excited to implement the knowledge once the pandemic is over. This scholarship would support me in buying equipment that I would need to make films in the coming years. I thank Access again for their generous support.

Jana Rutten

As a first-year student, this scholarship allowed me to support myself in my creative passion for film production and studies. The scholarship program created the stepping stones for me to hopefully become a film editor. I look forward to being able to create more stories and developing more skills through the University of Regina. I am incredibly grateful for Access Communication’s generous donation towards my education and am thankful for my achievement being recognized.

2021 Saskatchewan Polytechnic Recipients

Kimberlee Dirkson

Thank you so much for your generosity, which has allowed me to flourish in my education. I have wanted to make a career change for some time. I made the leap and applied to Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Just as the pandemic was getting started, I learned I had been accepted into the Computer Networking Technician program. Learning remotely certainly delivered expenses I hadn’t prepared for. I was able to afford to study at home and stay healthy with your support! I truly appreciate the privilege of continuing my education and set higher goals for myself at home during this time. 

Dean Shalanski

I would like to say, thank you to Access Communications for allowing us the ability to apply for the scholarship program. It is a great honour to receive this award. This scholarship means that I will be able to buy the materials that I need for my classes and help pay for living expenses. In this current time that we are in, it is difficult to find employment so having this scholarship helps me with being able to make it through the coming months, so I am able to make it to the next semester and beyond.
