The president and CEO of Keyano College is helping bring post-secondary education to Alberta’s northernmost communities. Kevin Nagel helped cut the ribbon at Keyano College’s new $3.5-million Fort Chipewyan campus in September 2011, kicking off the first academic year at Alberta’s northernmost post-secondary campus. Nagel, who joined Keyano College in April 2011, is also helping it expand its course offerings in northeastern Alberta. Under Nagel’s tenure, Keyano has launched new partnership programs with Finning Canada and partnered with educational boards from Fort McMurray to Fort McKay to help local high school students pursue further education.
