The Okanagan College Foundation is pleased to announce that Debbie Robert has joined its board as a new director.

Robert now resides in Kelowna after calling Fort McMurray home for 32 years. She and her husband Leo are retired co-owners of L. Robert Enterprises Ltd., a heavy equipment rental/repair business based out of that region that employs more than 400 people.

Previously, Robert was appointed and served on the Keyano College Board of Governors for a six year term, and upon completion chaired the Keyano College Foundation Board of Directors for a further six years.

“Okanagan College plays such an important role in education and training throughout the valley. I look forward to joining the Foundation board to assist with current and future developments that will enhance the student experience,” says Robert.

She is currently serving as Northern Projects Sector Chair for the Foundation’s Bright Horizons, Building for Skills fundraising campaign which is seeking to raise $7 million for the new Trades Training Complex at the Kelowna campus.
