A local businessman and philanthropist has been honoured at Mohawk College.
Blair McKeil has received the inaugural Mohawk College fellowship, an honour that recognizes those who provide outstanding support for the school and champion the college in the community.
He also delivered the convocation address to graduates on Wednesday afternoon.
McKeil is the Chairman and CEO of McKeil Marine and along with his family, he donated one million dollars to support the Fennell Campus Renewal Project last fall while also establishing scholarships and financial need bursaries for students.
At that time, Mohawk's Faculty of Business was renamed the McKeil School of Business.
