Let building begin for new Petroleum Centre
With shovels in hand, construction of Lakeland College’s new Petroleum Centre officially began September 11 during a sod-turning ceremony at the Lloydminster campus. The facility, estimated to cost $17 million, will enable Lakeland College to meet student and industry demand by offering more full-time and part-time oil and gas programming.
$250,000 received from Gwyn Morgan and Patricia Trottier Foundation
More students will have the opportunity to take energy related programming at Lakeland College thanks to a $250,000 donation from The Gwyn Morgan and Patricia Trottier Foundation. In its 99-year-history, this is the largest donation Lakeland College has received from a private foundation. It will be used to establish an endowment fund that will generate a minimum of three annual awards to assist people taking oil and gas related training at Lakeland. Gwyn Morgan is the retired founding president and CEO of EnCana
Corporation, and Patricia Trottier, former communications executive,
manages the foundation.
