Professor Tom Santosham remembered through annual award

When Dr. Tom Santosham's car slid off the road and into the lake near his home in Penicton on Oct. 31, 2014, the Okanagansantosham College family lost a beloved member. Over his 14-year career as a professor of global marketing, Dr. Santosham inspired countless staff and students with his energy and his love for teaching.

In the wake of this tragic loss, the Santosham family decided to create an annual award that would support business students at Okanagan College’s Kelowna Campus. In Dec. 2014, the family has established the Thomas V. Santosham Award in Business, an annual award of $1,000 that will be open to domestic students continuing in the Business Administration program.
