Daranne Harris (HS’95)

Rev. Daranne Harris, in her first term of service, has served on the Board of Regents since 2015. Rev. Harris serves as Vice President and Chief Mission Officer for the Bethany Care Society, one of Alberta’s leading faith-based providers of long term care and housing for seniors. As the leader of the Pastoral Care Department, Daranne ensures that the spiritual needs of residents and their families are addressed, promoting excellence in pastoral care and end-of-life care through research-based practice.

Daranne is an alumna of Luther College High School (HS’95). She gives back to Luther as “an expression of gratitude for the quality of education and relationships” it provided her and she enjoys “the continued community shared by alumni, faculty, and others committed to the school.” Through her investment of time and financial support for the school, she hopes “current and future students will also be blessed by the experience of being a Luther student and alumni.”

Daranne is ordained by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and brings a theological voice and background in communications to the governance conversation. When she is not serving as a board member at Luther, she is active in parish life and the volunteer opportunities of parenting. She also serves on the leadership team for Calgary’s Metro Alliance for the Common Good, an organization that brings together faith communities, labour unions, social enterprise and community groups to address systems, policies and underlying causes of poverty and injustice.
