The Medicine Hat College is celebrating half a century of learning. To mark the birthday, the college board and faculty say they are committed to completing 50 Acts of College throughout our region between September 1st and June 30th. The first event is set to happen today at noon when College volunteers gather to support of the United Ways Tools for School campaign. The volunteers will be buying 50 backpacks for 50 high school students, and filling them with supplies for the new school year. Spokesman Kendra Borgan says the college community joined the cause to help students in our region start the school year right with the supplies they need to succeed.
