Alumnus gives dose of support to Pharmacy Technician students
Shane Bishop, founder and CEO of Catalyst Healthcare, is donating $30,000 in support of Okanagan College’s Health Sciences Centre on the Kelowna campus.
Bishop spent his first two years of post-secondary at the College, and the gift is his way of paying it forward to the organization and its students.
“Okanagan College provides access to future careers and I wanted to be part of supporting students entering the pharmacy sector,” he says.
Catalyst's gift will support a new ante room where Pharmacy Technician students will practice making custom medications along with undergoing strict cleaning and gowning protocols before entering an aseptic lab.
“This gift creates pride and encouragement for our students who see that an alumnus and owner of a health care business is investing in their education,” says Yvonne Moritz, OC’s Interim Dean of Science, Technology and Health.
