March 21, 2014

Selkirk College has received a $1-million donation from Columbia Basin Trust that will go towards the planned upgrades to Selkirk’s Silver King and Castlegar campuses. The donation marks the beginning of a campaign to raise the $32 million needed for the capital project, which Selkirk says will result in “modern facilities that provide the most beneficial learning environments for students.” Proposed improvements to the Silver King Campus include a major renovation and equipment upgrade to the shop areas, work on the classroom block, and the addition of student common learning spaces. The Castlegar Campus renovations include redevelopment of the learning spaces, classrooms and equipment. Selkirk News Release
