Manitoba Minister of Education and Training visits Providence
Providence was honoured to welcome The Hon. Ian Wishart, MLA for Portage La Prairie and Minister of Education and Training, to the Otterburne campus on Friday, May 12.
Accompanied by Providence President Dr. David Johnson, Board Chair Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht and Emerson MLA Cliff Graydon, the Minister was toured through several education-purposed facilities, including the William Falk Library, the Welcome Centre, the Buller School of Business and the new science laboratories.
He also spoke briefly with biology professor Dr. Rebecca Dielschneider and business professor Bruce Duggan, who was hosting a group of 49 people that had come from Winnipeg to see the school’s biomass burner.
Following the tour the Minister met with members of the Providence Cabinet to discuss the institution’s accomplishments, priorities and needs. He extended his approval of the work and vision of Providence—sentiments that were echoed by Mr. Graydon.
Providence looks forward to welcoming the Minister of Education and Training back to campus in the future.
