Camosun Business Co-op student Robin Stone received dual honours this year as she was selected as both the National College Co-op Student of the Year and the Provincial (BC/Yukon) College Co-op Student of the Year for 2017. This is the 11th year in a row a Camosun student has been named the provincial co-op student of the year.

“Robin has been an exemplary student and a wonderful student ambassador of applied learning at Camosun,” says Nancy Sly, Director of Applied Learning, Co-operative Education & Career Services. “By completing two very impactful co-op work terms and achieving a near-perfect GPA, she has been able to successfully apply what she has learned in the classroom to the workplace. As a result, Robin has made a tremendous impact on both the Camosun and local community.”

Graduating from the Bachelor of Business Administration (Accounting) program this year, Robin completed successful co-op work terms at the Risk Management Unit of the Department of National Defense, CFB Esquimalt and at Environment and Climate Change for the Government of British Columbia. She is also a graduate of Camosun’s Fine Furniture program, has been an Artist in Residence at York House and was previously President of the Board of Directors of the Smithers Art Gallery.

Camosun delivers over 30 academic and technical programs with a paid work experience component, aligning closely with the BCTech Strategy and labour market demands. Co-op education is just one way Camosun students learn to apply their new knowledge and skills to real-world challenges.
