Lakeland College’s interior design technology program’s winning streak in student design competitions is still alive
Current students and instructors Fiona McLeod, Greg Plant, and Rochelle Horne watched a webinar on Sept. 25 that revealed the winners of the 2014-15 National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) student kitchen design and charette competitions. There was plenty of cheering in the classroom as three members of the Class of 2015 were recognized:
  • Laura Cobb placed first in the NKBA/General Electric Charette Competition and won a $5,000 scholarship;
  • Bree-Anne Hubick finished third and received a $3,000 scholarship; 
  • Kayla Soto won the NKBA Student Kitchen Design Competition and earned a $2,500 scholarship; and
  • Cobb finished third in the NKBA Student Kitchen Design Competition and collected a $1,000 scholarship.
Quotable Quotes:
“I’m very proud of the students and the fabulous work they did. Our students work hard and we try to have this program replicate a professional design firm. They are expected to meet deadlines and create quality work,” says McLeod.

“I was super excited. It’s a huge confidence booster for me as it shows me that I have the skill-set to be successful in this industry,” says Cobb, who is an office planner at SaskPower in Regina.

This is the 12th year in a row that at least one Lakeland student has placed in a design competition.
