Grant makes virtual meetings a reality

KINCARDINE – The Lake Huron Learning Collaborative will soon be able to hold virtual volunteer development meetings across Huron and Bruce counties, thanks to a $7,600 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

To mark the occasion, MPP Thompson presented a plaque to LHLC staff and Board members recently.

“I am very pleased to present the Lake Huron Learning Collaborative with this grant. Investing the in the continued education of students in Huron-Bruce is very important, and this group should be applauded for their innovative thinking and commitment to post-secondary education in our community,” said Lisa Thompson, MPP for Huron-Bruce

Formed in 2004, the LHLC began to investigate options for delivering studies at the college and university level.  By working with the Town of Goderich, Municipality of Kincardine, boards of education, various non-profit organizations and supportive agencies at the local and county level, the LHLC has been able to form additional partnerships, including with the Western universities and colleges, to bring post-secondary courses and training to the communities of Huron and Bruce counties. Lake Huron Learning will also offer non-credit interest courses built around local needs and using local expertise.

“We’re pleased to accept this grant to increase technical access in both our Huron and Bruce County sites. The grant will benefit both our students and Board members to electronically associate and participate,” said Larry Kraemer, who is president of LHLC.
