Rob McDermott has been an enthusiastic supporter of the arts in the Forth Valley area for a number of years, his interests varying from cinema to amateur dramatics. A gap in his busy diary led him to returning to the stage thirty years after he had hung out with the Sharks in a production of West Side story in his teens. An insatiable appetite for doing things has led him to being part of the Trustee group, his enthusiasm for singing, acting, community involvement and generally having a good time has come in handy in this role. In between performing, sailing, cycling, skiing and being a dad he finds time to work at Forth Valley College ensuring to the best of his abilities things are done right and on time.
