Kitimat Valley Institute held an open house on Thursday November 3rd. People from across the community were in attendance. The Spirit of the Kitlope introduced the open house.
“The open house was to celebrate our first year as a not for profit society for Kitimat Valley Institute. To celebrate the successes of the students that have come through here over the last few years and, of course, to enjoy a social time with our partners in training, our founders and our guests,” said Kelley Williams.
KVI is an accredited post secondary training collage. The collage is accredited through Pictia. They started as a corporation and are now a non profit society.
KVI plans to respond to the training needs in Kitimat as the new industries come into town during the next year. They hope to continue to develop KVI as a educator of choice in the Northwest. Within 10 years, they hope to be training people around the region.
“I’d really like to extend special thanks to our guests, the spirit of the Kitlope Dancers, they did a wonderful job entertaining our guests that evening and blessing us with a debut of a couple of songs,” said Williams.
She thanked the Masons for providing the beverages and drove people home, the board members and the staff.
