Lakehead University is looking like a million bucks, after a cheque presentation at the Orillia campus.
Officials from the County of Simcoe were on hand to present the million-dollar contribution, another installment in its $10 million commitment to the education centre. This brings the total contribution from the county to Lakehead to $8.5 million.
