MIAMI, FL – Ryder System is granting $50,000 to Ontario-based Mohawk College over the next five years, supporting a major redevelopment at the school.
The Stoney Creek, Ontario campus – which has about 4,000 students – will name a classroom after Ryder in recognition of the support.
“It’s important at Ryder that we continue to invest in the best talent in the industry, and that includes creating a pipeline of talent to fill skilled positions in the future,” said Jerry Brown, Ryder Canada vice president – operations. “Our partnership with Mohawk will help to enhance the educational experience for the next generation of technicians in Canada and keep Ryder top of mind as an employer of choice for Mohawk students when they graduate.”
The classroom will be officially unveiled on October 11.
“Ryder’s generous investment will help us expand our skilled trades campus,” said Ron McKerlie, Mohawk president. “We’re excited to open a new building, where students and apprentices from different programs and trades will develop their skills by working together on major projects.”
