Exams And A Baby Fanshawe Student Passes Two Big Tests In One Day
Newborn Emma Mater

Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus graduating student Jill Mater welcomes daughter hours after finishing her final exam

Woodstock, Ontario - Just hours after writing her final exam, Fanshawe student Jill Mater successfully delivered a healthy baby girl at Woodstock General Hospital on Thursday, February 1.

Emma Mater was born at 7:46 p.m., weighing in at 5 lbs. 10 oz., and was welcomed by soon-to-be graduate Jill and her husband Andrew.

In a truly unique set of circumstances, a very pregnant Jill wrote the final exam for the Health Care Office Assistant program, one of the Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus' newest MyPath offerings, mere hours before going to the hospital to have Emma.

Jill entered the program after the recent Siemens Canada plant closure in Tillsonburg left her and Andrew unemployed and looking for options. Pending final grades, Jill is expected to be a member of the first MyPath graduating class.

"We were truly proud to receive such a joyous announcement with a major connection to our campus," said student engagement specialist Eric Collins.

"Rest assured," Collins added, tongue-in-cheek. "Emma's recruitment for fall 2036 is well underway."

Fanshawe College is one of Ontario's largest colleges. For more than 50 years, Fanshawe has been helping people to unlock their potential and achieve success.

The Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus of Fanshawe College offers academic upgrading, certificate and diploma programs, continuing education and apprenticeship opportunities. Boasting 50 acres of beautifully landscaped property, the campus is home to nearly 500 students every year and facilitates full-time, part-time and self-paced learning in modern facilities with spectacular views. Visit www.fanshawec.ca/woodstock for more information.

MyPath program offerings, launched at Fanshawe's Woodstock/Oxford Regional Campus in the fall of 2017, are designed for students seeking flexible, short-term, career-specific training options. Each program has multiple intakes throughout the year, meaning new MyPath students may begin their studies approximately every six to eight weeks. Courses are offered as six-week learning modules, working toward one of three certificates including Health Care Office Assistant.
