RDC student receives National Leadership Award

Red Deer College student Robin Chiles has been recognized by College and Institutes Canada.

The award for leadership excellence is given to a student who has made a contribution to their school, as well as to the community.

“RDC has enjoyed the opportunity to have Robin Chiles as a talented student, and has benefited from her extraordinary leadership in her many pursuits. She is enthusiastic, heartfelt and wise beyond her years,” says Shelley Ralston, a college vice-president.

“Robin gives 110 per cent on everything that she does, whether it is at the board of governors’ meetings, within a practicum, or at a community event. Her interactions and her contributions are plentiful, and they are greatly appreciated by me and by the many other individuals at the college and in our larger community who have had the pleasure of learning from, and working with, Robin,” said Ralston.

Chiles is a wife, a mother of two, a community volunteer and a full-time nursing student.

She is in her final year of the bachelor of science nursing program and is a student leader on the RDC board of governors, the students’ association, and a member of the nursing society on campus.

“When I first began my educational journey at Red Deer College, being a student leader was not something I set out to achieve. However, I soon recognized my passion for helping others succeed,” she said.
