WEYBURN – Southeast College announced a renewed scholarship partnership with Vermilion Energy Inc.
Vermilion Energy has committed to a $9,000 contribution, spread over the next three years, to support the ongoing education and success of Southeast College students.

“Vermilion is proud to be a financial supporter to the Southeast College Scholarship Fund. Our Vermilion Ways of Caring community investment program is helping to fulfill our purpose – to responsibly produce essential energy – by giving back to our community partners and contributing to healthy, resilient and sustainable communities,” said Shane Pollock, area superintendent for Vermilion Energy.
“Southeast College is grateful to Vermilion Energy for choosing to invest in Southeast College students,” said Kassandra Lawrenz, manager of college advancement. “It’s continued partnerships like this that are so valuable for our students as they are able to ease some of the financial pressures of pursuing a post-secondary education.”
