Tami Harrison joined in October 2016. Tami is the director of a Newton Abbot firm of accountants and mother of four children. She brings to the Board financial expertise and a clear understanding of the importance of providing a good educational setting.
Tami was delighted to have been approached to join the Board; having lived in and around Newton Abbot for the past 15 years, she has seen evidence of the vast improvement that the College has made in recent years and is looking forward to bringing this on even further.
Whilst not having had any children at Newton Abbot College, Tami is very aware of the positive impact the College has had on the local community. The behaviour of the students in and around the town has a very direct impact on residents and well-educated students are essential for Newton Abbot’s business community to be able to offer work placements and employment in the immediate area.
