Gerald Marshall Centre Benefit raises $44,000 for campus improvements at STARRT

Congratulations to the organizers and all who attended the 7th Annual Gerald Marshall Centre Benefit last Saturday. The event raised more than $44,000 for campus improvements at Mohawk College's STARRT Campus in Stoney Creek.

Named in honour of the late Gerald Marshall, the Gerald Marshall Centre provides students in the College's truck and trailer programs with hands-on training in a state-of-the-art truck garage that accommodates up to three full-size tractor trailers. The Marshall family donated $1.2 million to the Centre, as a tribute to Gerald, founder and owner of G. Marshall Transport Ltd. The family continues to raise money for the Gerald Marshall Fund to support the transformation of the Stoney Creek Campus and enhance the college’s Truck and Coach Apprenticeship program.
