One of the largest general contracting and construction management companies based in southern Alberta, Ward Bros. Construction Ltd. announced a $200,000 gift to Lethbridge College in September.
The gift, which will be used to establish two classrooms in the college’s new trades and technologies facility, illustrates the ongoing support the college cultivates with its industry partners as well as the value placed on training the trades and technologies workforce of today and of the future.
“To commemorate our 40th year in business, we thought it was fitting to make this donation to benefit the students at Lethbridge College,” says Ward Bros. Construction Ltd. Chief Operating Officer Colin Ward (Civil Engineering Technology 1995, Distinguished Alumnus 2010). “These same students will make up our future skilled workforce to ensure that both Ward Bros. and the entire construction industry in southern Alberta continues to thrive. We are proud to partner with Lethbridge College to ensure the continued success of our community.”
Ward Bros. has been a scholarship founder at the Lethbridge College since 2005, a Kodiaks donor, and a supporter of many annual college events including the Clayton Allan Wine Auction, the Lethbridge College Golf Tournament, and other special dinners and celebrations for the last 15 years.
