In recognition, Lakehead President Brian Stevenson announced that the university’s Academic Building would be named Simcoe Hall. Stevenson says the latest gift will go towards the funding of “this world-class campus” and the academic experience of its students. “Without the county, Lakehead University would not be in Orillia today,” added Stevenson.
