The Mohawk College Alumni Association was recognized Monday for supporting the college's Fennell Campus Renewal Project. The Association's $100,000 donation was celebrated with the dedication of the Mohawk College Alumni Association Entrance Plaza at the Mohawk Learning Exchange.

"Once again, the Mohawk College Alumni Association has stepped up in a big way for Mohawk students," said President Rob MacIsaac.

"The Mohawk College Alumni Association is proud to help our alma mater continue the important work of transforming lives and building community," said Alumni Council Chair Sandra Ireland, who received a Mohawk Alumni of Distinction Award in 2004 for her career achievements and community contributions.

The Mohawk College Alumni Association, which serves more than 90,000 alumni, has contributed nearly $700,000 over the past 15 years to student bursaries and major construction and renovation projects.

In 2010, the Alumni Association established $500 named student bursaries for every recipient of the Mohawk College Alumni of Distinction Award.

The largest campus renewal project in Mohawk's history is creating more places and better spaces for students to learn, collaborate and create.
