DURHAM -- Fifteen students from Durham College will have the chance to support the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games this summer.

Three students from the broadcasting for contemporary media program will assist the CBC in broadcasting the events, and 12 students from the construction carpentry program will help build and maintain residences for the athletes.

“We are very excited and pleased that our students have this opportunity to gain skills in such a high-profile international event,” said Durham College president Don Lovisa. “This event will certainly put their abilities to the test, but we know they will excel and shine as ambassadors for our programs, the college and the Region of Durham.”

The media students will assist camera crews and work in the broadcast control centre, while the carpentry students will help build the residences and be part of repair teams working 24/7 to ensure any issues are addressed.

After the Games, the residences will be gutted and transformed into high-end condos.

Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games run from July 10 to 26 followed by the Parapan Am Games from Aug. 7 to 15.
