Fanshawe Foundation Honours Donors
On January 16, 2009, the College celebrated the opening of the new facilities in the Lawrence Kinlin School of Business with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The School was renamed recently to honour Larry Kinlin for his $1 million gift to Fanshawe College. At the event, Catherine Finlayson, Executive Director of the Fanshawe College Foundation, expressed thanks to Larry and congratulated the School of Business on the opening of its new offices.
