College receives Chamber award

2011-02-23

St. Lawrence College was honoured this weekend during the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce annual awards gala. College President, Chris Whitaker, and Cornwall campus Dean, Don Fairweather were presented with the Skills Development Award for showing leadership in training and education in the community.

"The winner of the award is, as you will no doubt agree, a 'slam dunk'. Its impact on the skills development throughout the Cornwall region and further afield is virtually beyond measure because of the vast scope of what it does," said Mike Metcalfe, the evening's Master of Ceremony. "Look around you--to your left--to your right--across the table and you are probably looking at someone whose life was impacted by our winner."

Chris Whitaker was delighted by the announcement. "Receiving this recognition from the Chamber of Commerce is a great honour. It acknowledges appreciation from our employers in the community for the great work of our faculty and staff in serving the needs of our students, and contributing to the development of a skilled workforce," he said.
