Two new Board members were appointed to the Yukon College Board this month. Ranj Pillai is the staff representative, nominated by college employees, and Fabiana Naves is the student union representative, chosen by the student union.
Pillai has worked at Yukon College for the past five years as an Instructor and Coordinator. He was also recently elected to Whitehorse City Council and he’s active in many community organizations including the FASSY Board, Whitehorse Elementary School Council, and Copper Ridge Neighborhood Association.
Naves is an international student from Belo Horizonte, Brazil who is studying Tourism. As Student Union President, a full-time student herself, and holding down several part-time jobs, Naves is busy learning about the life, culture and governing structures of Canada.
