Vernon city councillor Juliette Cunningham has been appointed to Okanagan College’s Board of Governors.
Cunningham is vice-chair of the North Okanagan Regional District board and of the Okanagan Water Basin Board.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Simon Fraser University and has worked extensively with non-profit boards, including the People Place and the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives.
“I am very familiar with the contribution Okanagan College makes to the community and the region,” says Cunningham. “I am eager to work with Chris (Derickson who chairs the college board), the other board members and administration to ensure its continued success and development.”
Other appointees include David Porteous, Shelly Cook and Tina Lee.
All four have been appointed to the college’s board by the provincial government for one-year terms that began at the end of July.
