October 20, 2016

The County of Simcoe presented Lakehead University with a $1M gift earlier this week during a celebration event, bringing the county's total investment in the university to $6.5M since 2009. The gift comes from the County of Simcoe’s Strategic Plan, according to Warden Gerry Marshall, which supports postsecondary education with a vision for the future. “The impact of the County’s contributions over the years has served as a value-added investment in the region,” said Lakehead President Brian Stevenson. “Today’s gift furthers Simcoe County’s growth—growth in the success of our teaching, community service, and research activities, as well as increased economic impacts.” Lakehead
