Synergy Credit Union is contributing $150,000 to the rejuvenation of the WHT Mead Building at Lakeland College’s Vermilion campus.
This donation will help ensure students and future leaders have the collaborative spaces they need to learn, lead, and manage.
The newly reopened WHT Mead Building is home to more than 600 agricultural sciences students with more expected soon.
