Cactus Club honours chef’s legacy

Okanagan College alumnus Kelroy Munroe is being honoured for his energy, enthusiasm and excellence through a new scholarship in his name funded by the Cactus Club Cafe.

Staff from the Cactus Club Kelowna restaurant have developed an annual $1,000 scholarship in memory of the Jamaican student who moved to Kelowna in 2007 to become a Red Seal certified chef. 

Munroe was a scholarship student who attended the Culinary Arts program at Okanagan College.

As part of his training, he worked at the Cactus Club location in Kelowna. In the summer of 2010, Munroe lost his life in a boating accident. 

Since then, his Cactus Club colleagues have worked with the Okanagan College Foundation to develop a $1,000 scholarship in his memory to benefit a domestic or international culinary arts student.
