|Jenn Redmond, Recruitment Coordinator
I’m the Recruitment Coordinator for Holland College. I have been with Holland College for almost 11 years, and I’m a graduate of the Sport & Leisure Management program. After graduating, I spent a number of years working in the recreation, event, and sport industry before returning to Holland College as a Lab Assistant/ Instructor in the Sport & Leisure program in 2007. In 2015, I joined the Recruitment team.
My strong committment to lifelong learning has led me to the completion of a Bachelor of Education degree, and I am currently working toward a Masters of Education. I truly believe that education paired with passion and positive learning environments make for truly amazing experiences. I look forward to assisting students with finding their desired paths, and I truly believe that, “You’ll make it here”!

HOLLi has been part of the recruiting team for a while now. She started out as a plain white Ford Escape, but soon decided she needed to take things up a notch and got herself “wrapped” in this wild pattern. Now she’s loving the attention she gets!
HOLLi describes her personal style as “hybrid”: Swedish House Mafia meets Fun, but she’ll listen to just about anything on Sirius while she’s cruising around the region. When she’s back home on P.E.I., HOLLi enjoys hanging with the recruitment crew at the college and local high schools, getting waxed at Wash World, and topping up her tank at the gas station. HOLLi posts her touring schedule on the website under Recruitment Events. Check out when she’ll be in your neck of the woods!
|Captain Samuel Holland, Mascot
Holland College was named after surveyor Samuel Holland, who created the first truly modern, accurate map of Prince Edward Island in 1765. Captain Sam can be spotted at many college events, from Orientation Day to sporting events, to open houses, to randomly rambling around the college to meet our students.
