Shawn Wood is a 27-year-old entrepreneur enrolled at North Island College who is putting his schooling to good use this summer.

In NIC’s business administration program for two years, Wood decided to open his own business.

Operating a College Pro Window cleaning company, he purchased a franchise from the well-known company.

“Being in the business field, I will be able to apply all the practical knowledge I have learned to my own company. My intentions are to hire as many college students as I can.

“I want to help others earn their way through school as well as myself,” he adds. “I want to make a difference in the Comox Valley.

“By offering free services to needy non-profit business, I hope to promote both myself and the businesses.

“I have nothing but high hopes as I canvas door-to-door for clients over the next few weeks trying to get houses booked for May.”
