Amanda Ratcliffe, the Valedictorian representing the graduating class of the Maple Ridge campus, highlighted the help provided by the administration and instructors at Sprott Shaw College, stating, “I want you to know what a great gift it is to be as prepared as we are, because not all schools offer such an advantage.
