Annette Revet, B.Sc. Hons. (Regina), M.B.A. (Regina), C.Dir.
Chief Transformation Officer at Conexus Credit Union
Annette graduated from Campion with a Bachelor of Science Honours in 1989.
Annette remembers not just the place but also more importantly, the people who enriched her Campion days like Loretta Leibel, “a fierce advocate for students and also someone that I trusted entirely to guide me through the process of registering for classes to obtain my first degree.” And, along with many others, she too was fond of the library though much of her studying took place in the Laboratory Building.
She remembers good times like those when Campion facilitated friends’ weddings. And yet, some sombre times too. The college thoughtfully held a funeral service for a colleague, Bill Howard, and even her own father’s passing; who also was a Campion alumnus. Father Ben and Father Frank offered a mass in his memory back in 2009.
Regarding volunteer efforts, she was on the committee ten years ago to celebrate a special Campion anniversary:
“Campion’s 90th – I was on the organizing committee for this event – great friendships were developed while being an organizing committee member (friendships that continue today) … I was proud to be part of a team that resulted in such a great celebration…”
Since 2009, Annette has served as Regent on the Board of Regents of the Athol Murray College of Notre Dame adding that, “It is a privilege to be part of an institution focused on graduating future leaders educated in the development of the whole person, i.e. mind, body and spirit.”
A year ago, Annette enjoyed a rewarding experience to host a credit union manager from Myanmar via the Co-Operative Development Foundation of Canada. She’s inspired to travel to a developing country to volunteer for a worthy project herself one day.
When considering her greatest accomplishment, Annette prides herself in rich relationships with her family:
“I am most proud of the children that my husband, Jamie and I, have raised. My stepchildren, Courtney and Jared, and our son Branden, make me most proud when I see how they value family, building community, strive to do rewarding work and their commitment to continuous learning.”
