Jill on NBCC: NBCC offers opportunities for people to fulfill their potential and utilize their strengths, allowing them to make a significant contribution to the province’s overall growth and prosperity. It’s important that post-secondary institutions build on their individual strengths and offer students choices in areas of specialization. NBCC has a range of programs that reflect the diversity within regions and our economy.  As an NBCC graduate, my diploma was a springboard early in my career to employment, which led to further education and professional accreditations, and fueled a passion for life-long learning.  I feel fortunate to be in a position to give back to NBCC by serving on the Board of Governors.
