A long-time Okanagan College employee has joined its board of governors.

Cindy Battersby, who retired in 2021 after more than 30 years at the college, is the newest member of the board.

“We’re excited to have someone with such a wide breadth of experience at Okanagan College and in the community join the OC board of governors,” board chair Juliette Cunningham said in a press release.

“Cindy will join our board in guiding the institution’s strategic direction, ensuring its ongoing commitment to providing accessible, high-quality education to students while fostering a supportive and inclusive campus environment.”

Battersby served as a financial awards analyst in the college’s student services department prior to her retirement. She was also the administration vice-president of BC Association of Student Awards Professionals.

Battersby also had a vice-presidential role on the BC General Employees’ Union between 2019 and 2021.
