Melcor Developments Ltd., a company that has shaped the look of the western Canadian landscape for more than 90 years, will leave its mark at Lethbridge College through the establishment of a classroom in the new trades and technologies facility. The creation of the new classroom, which will be made possible thanks to a gift of $100,000 from Melcor, was announced in August.
“We are pleased to partner with Lethbridge College on their world-class trades and technologies facility and look forward to working with future graduates as we build innovative new communities in Lethbridge,” says Brian Baker, Melcor’s President and CEO. “Being invested in the prosperity and growth of the communities where we do business is an incredibly important element of our corporate culture and is part of what defines us as a company.
As we pursue excellence in our business, we also want the communities where we do business to be the best they can be. Innovation in education is an important component of building resilient communities.”
Melcor is a diversified real estate development and asset management company that takes real estate from raw land through to high-quality, finished product. Melcor has been a supporter of Lethbridge College students and initiatives since 2000, including through generously donating other gifts as well as participating in the Clayton Allan Wine Auction, the Lethbridge College Golf Tournament and many other events.
