Gordon Mills Business Education Center
Lyndon State College to Dedicate Business Education Center to Gordon Mills.
May 21, 2015
Lyndon State College is dedicating the second floor of the Academic and Student Activity Center to Gordon Mills, a visionary business and civic leader and entrepreneur. The second floor of the 30,000 square foot, state-of-the-art academic facility will be named “The Gordon Mills Business Education Center” at the Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Ceremony on Friday, May 29, 2015. The dedication reflects the life and accomplishments of Mills, who co-founded EHV Industries, Inc. (now known as WEIDMANN Electrical Technology, Inc.) in 1969 with Bob Fuehrer. The money raised for this dedication was directed towards the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship (CRE).
The mission of the CRE is to power economic growth by fostering work force development, entrepreneurship, and innovation in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom and New Hampshire’s North Country. Since its establishment, the CRE has grown the College’s Incubator Without Walls program that serves businesses and involves hands-on learning with students, created the NEK Manufacturing Training Program, launched an entrepreneur summer camp for middle school students, and established the NEK Career Connect program with local employers.
Please join Gordon’s family and the College in honoring Gordon Mills and his legacy on May 29, 2015 at 10:00 am on the second floor of Lyndon State College’s Academic and Student Activity Center.
