On September 14 Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides, along with Vermilion-Lloydminster-Wainwright MLA Garth Rowswell, Lakeland College President and CEO Dr. Alice Wainwright-Stewart, other Lakeland College board chairs, as well as supporters such as Lewis Farms, Innovation-Canada Foundation for Innovation, New Holland Agriculture, RBC Foundation, and MNP were in attendance to celebrate the Grand Opening and ribbon cutting of Lakeland’s new Agriculture Technology Centre.

“The opening of the Agriculture Technology Centre presents an exciting new chapter for Lakeland College and agriculture science students from across the country. Being able to deliver Canada’s first degree program in agriculture technology, in a state-of-the-art facility, continues to position Alberta as a world-class destination for post-secondary education,” says Minister Nicolaides.
