Inclusive Post-Secondary Education at Olds College: Congratulations Auria!

July 7, 2023

Olds College is one of the newest post-secondary institutes to work in partnership with Inclusion Alberta to include students with intellectual disabilities, beginning in February 2021. This spring, Auria became the first student to complete her studies in the Horticulture program at Olds College, with support from the inclusive post-secondary education initiative. Auria attended the convocation ceremony alongside her classmates to celebrate her achievement.  Congratulations Auria!

Since completing her studies, Auria was offered a job in her field of study with Edmonton’s first mobile flower truck, The Little Flower Truck Co. Catch the Little Flower Truck Co. at a local market near you this summer to purchase handmade, fresh flower bouquets creatively made by Auria and Randi.
