Last week I had the opportunity to attend the opening ceremony of NVIT’s Trades Facility at our Merritt BC Campus. NVIT’s president Ken Tourand MC’d the celebration with Key Stakeholders sharing a few words. Speakers included an Elder, Chief from one of the founding Nations, local MLA, the Premier, and myself representing NVIT’s Board of Governors.
I have been sitting on the Board for over 6 years and I could not be any prouder of our Institution and our NVIT family. We have been serving Aboriginal communities for over 30 years and now our Trades Facility will enhance our capacity to better serve industry needs throughout the province.
NVIT is a leader in Aboriginal Education and I look forward to seeing the influence it has on other Education Systems to enhance successful outcomes for Aboriginal communities in the future.
