Chris James, a member of VTT’s trusted security team, is much beloved by many of our students. Perhaps it’s because he shares a last name with the leading scorer of his favourite basketball team, Lebron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Or perhaps it’s because he connects so well with so many of our students, knowing each one by name and reviewing the previous night’s sports highlights with them.
A graduate of North Delta Secondary, Chris was born in northern India and spent the first seven years of his life attending a private Catholic school near Punjab. Because he was educated in English, moving to Canada did not come with the usual culture shock.
When not caring for our community, Chris can be found pumping iron at the gym, playing soccer, basketball and football, and sampling an array of ethnic food, including his Mom’s homemade Indian cooking.
Chris’ future aspiration is studying power engineering at BCIT. Until then, he is content to be a member of the VTT family.
