Stantec donates another $150,000 for Red Deer College
Stantec has boosted its investment in local post-secondary education to $250,000.
The engineering and architecture consulting firm donated $100,000 during the 10th annual Red Deer College Kings and Queens Scholarship Breakfast in March. The money went to the college’s Athletics Leadership Fund, which helps student athletes focus on their studies and sports.
On Wednesday, the company announced it was donating another $150,000.
The college’s Centre for Innovation in Manufacturing will receive $100,000. The centre is the home of the newly named Stantec CAD Lab, where sophisticated prototyping and design technology is used to turn ideas into real products.
The remaining $50,000 is earmarked for the Stantec Consulting Ltd. Endowment, which will provide $1,500 Stantec Engineering Technology Scholarships to a pair of students each year beginning this fall.
“We recognize that Red Deer College is the heart of our community, building the foundation for Red Deer and Central Alberta’s long-term success and prosperity,” says Stantec vice-president and regional leader Russ Wlad, in a statement.
College president Joe Ward says, “Their support will have a substantial impact on our student athletes, our learners, and enhance our ability to provide innovative technology and applied research opportunities to our communities.”
