A 1947 Grad Story


At Sprott Shaw College, we stand tall with our motto of “learning with purpose since 1903” – and Dorothy Pears, one of our previous students, is a living testament to that statement.

In 1947, Ms. Pears graduated from Sprott Shaw’s Executive Office Administrator Program as a student at the Victoria campus. In 2019, Ms. Pears celebrates a new milestone – her 90th birthday.

In honour of her 90th birthday, Ms. Pears was presented with an honorary diploma for her studies at Sprott Shaw. On December 7th, the diploma was presented to her at her birthday celebration by the current director of the Kamloops campus, Marty Tazelaar.

On behalf of Sprott Shaw College, we’d like to extend a big congratulations and happy birthday to Ms. Pears!
