$2.2-million bequest supports MHC health studies

September 24, 2012

Medicine Hat College has received its largest single donation ever in the form of a $2.2-million bequest that will benefit the institution's Division of Health Studies. Medicine Hat resident Ron Rodgers left the donation in memory of his wife Wilma prior to his death in 2011. The gift came as a surprise to MHC's foundation, as Rodgers had left no prior indication to the foundation office of his planned bequest. The donation will be used as an endowment and the interest accrued will go toward student bursaries and programming costs within the health studies division. MHC News Release | Medicine Hat News
