The Story Behind the Name
David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre
A $3 million donation from David Braley moved Mohawk to the head of the class for collegiate athletics and recreation. The donation from the owner and president of Orlick Industries supported construction ofthe 64,000 square foot centre where Mohawk students compete, train and exercise. The LEED gold certified building, a showpiece building on the Fennell Campus, opened in September 2013. This building replaced what had been one of the oldest and smallest gyms among Ontario’s 24 colleges. The centre has since hosted provincial and national tournaments and is open to students, staff and the community.
