Recognizing the Collicutt family’s donation to RDC

Red Deer College is proud to announce the permanent naming of the Collicutt Performance Fitness Zone.

Steven and Lorna Collicutt’s support for RDC in the 1990s contributed to our College’s trades programming and facilities, enhancing the learning and experience of hundreds of learners in the School of Trades and Technologies. Their recent donation toward Shaping Our Future supports the construction of our three major building projects and will impact thousands more of our learners in even more ways.

The Collicutt family’s support for RDC’s Alternative Energy Initiative, new Residence, and Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre is aptly acknowledged in the Collicutt Performance Fitness Zone, located within the new Centre. Their generous donation underscores the Collicutts’ long-standing commitment to the health, wellness and quality of life of our region’s residents.

A pillar of the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, the Collicutt Performance Fitness Zone includes space and equipment for all types of users and welcomes members from Bethany Care Centre Collegeside, Red Deer College students, staff and faculty, and the community. RDC is proud to partner with the Collicutt family in providing such an accessible, high-end fitness facility.

“We are very thankful for the ongoing support from Steve and Lorna Collicutt, who are committed community members and generous neighbours, as well as a significant employer in our region,” says RDC President and CEO, Joel Ward. “They are deeply connected to this community, and they continually show their commitment to providing increased opportunities and access for people from across central Alberta. We’re proud to honour their generous donation to our College in the Collicutt Performance Fitness Zone.”
