On March 19, MTE Consultants Inc. (MTE) officially launched an endowment fund supporting five engineering technology awards at Conestoga College. Conestoga President John Tibbits was present at MTE’s Kitchener office for the official signing of the agreement by MTE’s President Greg Marks and Vice-President Angelo Innocente.
The $25,000 financial commitment made by MTE will be matched by the Ontario Government's Ontario Trust for Student Support program, and will ensure that the five awards are supported in perpetuity. The purpose of the fund is to provide an annual award to a student in each of the following programs: Architecture - Construction Engineering Technology, Architecture - Project and Facility Management, Civil Engineering Technology - Environmental, Civil Engineering Technology and Environmental Engineering Applications.
“While we have sponsored these awards for several years through annual donations, we chose to make this pledge in 2010 as a compliment to our 25th anniversary. Over the past 25 years, we have made it a part of our culture to give back to the communities we work in and serve,” said Mr. Marks. “This pledge helps illustrate the dedication that our staff and the company embody. We are honoured that we will forever be connected with Conestoga College through this fund and the awards it supports.”
