Winnipeg Technical College Marks 25th Anniversary

By Brian Schultz

Winnipeg Technical College (WTC) is celebrating 25 years of practical job skills and career training by welcoming back WTC Alumni on Thursday evening.

What was first known as the South Winnipeg Technical Vocational Centre in 1985, has transformed into an institution that oversees six Adult Learning Centres, an English as an Additional Language (EAL) training centre and the Osborne Village Resource Centre which provides clients with job search and employability skills training.

Now with three campus locations and 19 core programs, WTC will celebrate its anniversary with a wine and cheese event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Delta Room of the Henlow Bay campus.

Guest speakers include Education Minister Nancy Allan, U of W President Dr. Lloyd Axworthy, and Payam Towfigh, President of State Industries (WTC Alumni, 1996). New WTC President and CEO John Bobbette will also be on hand.
