In late May, the Sheridan College Foundation invited potential financial supporters to a presentation introducing them to a proposed Animal Science Facility, also known as the "covered arena."
At the presentation, Dr. Ami Erickson, Dean of Agriculture and Career Tech, explained how the Large Animal Science Facility will enhance the academic programs, especially in the animal sciences. Also presenting was Trudy Munsick, Dean of Allied Health and project lead for the facility requirements.
Not only does the Foundation believe the building will be an asset to the college academically, but that it will be an asset to the community to be used for various non-college activities.
The Joe & Arlene Watt Foundation has continued its support of the agriculture programs at the college, committing $200,000 to the project, contingent upon the college raising an estimated $3 million, the estimated cost of the facility.
The news prompted this week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question: Should Sheridan College build a $3 million covered riding arena?
