"I have enjoyed working with the college immensely and will continue to look for opportunities to support it," said Fisher, who practicing law in Prince George with DLA Piper (Canada) LLP, in a press release.

"CNC is one of the pillars of the community and it is a huge honor to be associated with it."

Fisher has supported the college's natural resource and forestry programming, helping enhance student learning and activities through on-site mill tours, participation in research projects, and summer work opportunities.

Dunkley Lumber also offers scholarships and bursaries.

Fisher helped nurture that partnership said CNC president Henry Reiser.

"This is one of CNC's most treasured and extensive community partnerships and we would like to recognize Jason for all that he has done," said Reiser in the release.

The College of New Caledonia has awarded the Industry Partner Award every year since 2005, and recognizes someone who "goes above and beyond" in their support of additional and creative industry-related training.
