When the COVID-19 pandemic sidelined Ryan Corcoran’s practicum at a Miramichi manufacturing company in March, he didn’t give up. Instead, he found a way to gain practical experience, improve the company’s supply chain, and help his community. Ryan got involved with a project led by an NBCC instructor to manufacture non-medical face shields for front-line service workers, volunteering his time to work on marketing materials and supply chain management for Sunny Corner Enterprises. This involvement is typical of his time at NBCC, where he excelled academically while balancing family life and many extra-curricular activities including Service Learning Day, Student Council, Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, and a high school STEM program.
