SAIT’s oldest (known) alumnus turns 102

Clarence Hollingworth may be old, but he sure is spry. “Old age isn’t for sissies,” he says. 

SAIT's oldest known alumnus  (Electrical Engineering Technology ’34, Honorary Bachelor of Science ’15) celebrated his 102 birthday among family and friends in SAIT’s Heritage Hall, almost 96 years after he witnessed the laying of the building’s cornerstone in 1921.

As part of the celebrations, 102 birthday cards, along with a portrait drawing of Hollingworth by SAIT alumnus and staff member Jorge Torres, were given to Hollignworth. His cake was made by Baking and Pastry Arts students.
