HAMILTON, Ontario, Sept. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading Canadian insurance brokerage, Lawrie Insurance Group, is a proud Mohawk College Future Ready Premium Employer, actively supporting the school’s future-ready, job-ready graduates who will be the insurance industry leaders of tomorrow.
The long-standing partnership between Lawrie Insurance Group and Mohawk College supports student success, providing the opportunity to actively engage industry and community partners in the training of job-ready college graduates.
From the moment Mohawk College Insurance students enter the McKeil School of Business | School of Creative Industries, Liberal Studies & Communication, Lawrie Insurance Group supports their academic journey. Students learn in classrooms and meet in a lounge that bears the name of Dan Lawrie, founder of Lawrie Insurance Group. They receive scholarships and bursaries funded by the company, and they often receive job offers, too.
This college-company relationship goes back more than 20 years. Notably, in 2007, Dan Lawrie made a large donation to help fund the new Mohawk College Centre of Excellence in Insurance and Financial Services. A few years later, Dan Lawrie and other insurance industry leaders contributed $600,000 to outfit the Bert Hares Boardroom and two classrooms, where insurance students learn, collaborate and make presentations as they prepare for promising careers in Canada’s insurance industry. At that time, the Insurance Founders Lounge was also created, providing a space where students can gather and study.
The relationship between Lawrie Insurance Group and Mohawk College extends beyond the classroom. Lawrie Insurance Group has been a generous funder of student scholarships and bursaries for students in the Insurance program, supporting them as they pursue their studies. A Lawrie Insurance Group representative also sits on Mohawk College’s Program Advisory Committee, offering guidance and feedback to keep the courses current in a fast-changing field.
