Alice Wainwright-Stewart, president of Lakeland College, thanks Brent Fillmore, president of Fillmore Construction, for their visionary support and investment in Lakeland College.

A long-time collaborator with Lakeland College on many capital projects has donated $250,000 to the college.
Chris Fillmore, vice president of Fillmore Construction, announced the gift April 7.
The company recently served as the contractor of the Energy Centre which officially opened in August 2015 at the Lloydminster campus.
“We’re very proud of the work we and our building partners did with Lakeland College to construct the Energy Centre,” said Fillmore.
“It was a very complex project but the result is amazing.
“Together we created a leading training facility that will help students develop their skills and be industry-ready when they graduate.”
In recognition of the donation, Lakeland College is naming the student lounge in the Energy Centre the Fillmore Construction Student Lounge.
“My thanks to Fillmore Construction ... I know they worked tirelessly to create a facility where our students can take the lead and benefit from hands-on learning experiences,” said Alice Wainwright-Stewart, president of Lakeland College.
The company pledged $30,000 to Lakeland’s Emergency Training Centre Centennial Endowment Fund in 2010 to support awards for firefighter and emergency services technology students.
Fillmore Construction is also a major sponsor of the annual Lakeland College Golf Tournament supporting Rustlers Athletics.
“With today’s contribution we’re pleased to continue to support Lakeland College and its students and invest in the college’s growth,” said Fillmore.
The donation will go towards future capital projects at Lakeland College. Fillmore Construction is an Edmonton construction company, proudly serving Western Canada since 1991.
