Million Dollar Donation for Lethbridge College

 
 
LETHBRIDGE-What do you do with a million dollars?  For the Lethbridge and District Auto Dealers (LADA) you donate it to Lethbridge College for constructing a new trades and technologies building.  And that's exactly what they did on Wednesday. 

"The trades are so important," says LADA President Barry Dubnyk,"and we have students going up to Edmonton and Calgary for training, we won't have as many people in the industry and a lot of times we won't get them back here."

The money will go to help build a new facility for students in the Trades and Technology program.  Construction for the building will begin in the next three to five years. 

"We are absolutely thrilled beyond belief," says chair of Heavy Duty Mechanics Sheldon Anderson, "we have great technology, great instructors, now we just need a building to go along with it."

This year 1,000 trade students will graduate from the trades program.  The College hopes to have that increase to 2300 over the next few years.
