Dalton McGuinty (Premier of Ontario) and Heather Minow (President Niagara College Student Administrative Council and College Student Alliance Director)
Today was an exciting day for Niagara College with the visit of Dalton McGuinty who had a big fat cheque for 15.4 million dollars in tow. The donation is a much appreciated investment in the expansion of Niagara College's skills trade programs. The money will be used to expand classroom and specialized labs, making space for about 730 more students per year in technical and culinary programs.
It was an honour to be invited and meet Mr McGuinty, who is just as friendly as everyone says. As a recent graduate of Niagara and a former student leader this type of investment shows his government's commitment to imporoving the college system.
Thanks Dalton [and Ontario]!
