About the donor
The Possibilities Award is made possible by The PREP Academy, a community based non-profit organization that inspires and prepares African Nova Scotian high school students for college and university. We help students access resources and navigate processes. Our programs provide students with culturally informed experiences, exposure and opportunities; equipping students with the tools to succeed and chart their own path to success. Together, The PREP Academy and NSCC are working to eliminate educational barriers that exist for the African Nova Scotian community. These awards are generously funded by the Jeannine Deveau Achievement Fund.
