The OKANAGAN COLLEGE received its largest single donation, ever, at the Kelowna Campus on September 7, 2018.  Kelowna's Jacobsen family has gifted $1 million to the college's automotive trades program.

President Hamilton says some of the money will go to creating two new programs, and alternative fuel training program and a new technician program which is a two-year diploma program. Both are scheduled to be launched in about a year.  "Probably the most important thing of all is that about $250,000 will end up in the hands of students in the form of scholarships and bursaries," said Hamilton.

 

Al's 1963 Corvette was present to represent the year that the automotive program started at what was then a Vocational School.

Rhonda Jacobson-Lebedoff made the announcement on behalf of her mother Muriel, and brother Shayne.

For more than 40 years, Ron Jacobson operated Jacobson Pontiac Buick in Kelowna.

The second GM Product on display was a Chevrolet VOLT.

It's now operating as BANNISTER AUTOMOTIVE GROUP.
