Friends of the college, industry leaders and members of the community will celebrate student achievement and leadership during the President’s Gala – presented by Eagle Builders – at the Lloydminster campus.
“Lakeland College is thrilled to have Eagle Builders as the presenting sponsor of the 2017 President’s Gala. Their investment in our students is appreciated,” says Alice Wainwright-Stewart, Lakeland’s president. Every dollar raised at this premier event increases Lakeland’s student awards program, making it possible for more talented students to access the money they need for their education.
Now in its fifth year, the President’s Gala shines a light on how our students take the lead at Lakeland. With a dynamic range of student-led learning opportunities, such as running a play program for local families, hosting math fairs at local schools and providing quality spa services in our on-campus spa, our students have the opportunity to take charge of their future and excel.
“On behalf of Eagle Builders, it’s an honour to be part of the 2017 President’s Gala. We are committed to helping students gain the training and experience they need to meet their goals,” says Craig Haan, director for Eagle Builders. “By supporting the President’s Gala, we’re excited to give back and help provide Lakeland students with valuable opportunities to take the lead.”
Lakeland students don’t just benefit from the President’s Gala – they help plan and host the event. From creating auction items to serving the meal and emceeing the program, our students work side-by-side with our staff, sponsors and volunteers to make the President’s Gala a success.
George Canyon – a Canadian country music legend – is headlining the 2017 President’s Gala. The multi-Juno award winner and platinum selling artist will share a special acoustic performance with gala guests on March 24. A four-course meal complete with table service, a luxury raffle package, and live and silent auctions are also part of the event.
