Supporting Students: The Dr. Norm Daley Initiative
“For years, being in business, I have seen the benefits of having TRU within our community. With the cost of education and the cost of living today, these students need our help to ensure that we have people in the workforce moving forward.”
- Norm Daley
For more than 50 years, TRU has supported the educational needs of students in the BC Interior and beyond, preparing graduates to work, lead and innovate locally.
