On Friday, July 21, the Huu-ay-aht First Nation Education Department hosted a celebration lunch for the 2023 Huu-ay-aht Graduates and families.

Nine out of 20 graduates attended. Many could not attend due to Highway 4 closures, practicum commitments, or living out of province.

The celebration began with a speech from Benson Nookemis, Executive Councillor and current education portfolio holder Stella Peters. Following after was, Executive Councilor and past education portfolio holder Edward R. Johnson, and finally was Chief Councillor John Jack.

Following speeches, the graduates received Huu-ay-aht First Nation 2023 Graduation hoodies, a cedar headband and financial recognition.

Education, Training, and Employment Manager Brent Ronning and Education Coordinator Vanessa Sabbas congratulate all 2023 Huu-ay-aht Graduates and wish them the best in their endeavours.
