Garry Douglas Memorial Scholarship
Posted by Emily Craigen in News
Garry Douglas was a devoted professional whose mantra was integrity, innovation and excellence. He was a dedicated project developer and integral member of the Kawartha Lakes Construction team for five years. A true master in his field, Garry had a mind not just for tasteful and unique design solutions but also possessed the structural knowledge required to bring his creations to life.
Beyond his unique skillset, Garry was kind, personable and devoted to his family, colleagues and community. He sat on the board of directors with the Kawartha Chamber of Commerce and was an avid supporter of Habitat for Humanity. Enormously generous with his time, he had a knack for mentoring his younger colleagues and was always willing to share his wisdom.
Garry was deeply loved and respected at Kawartha Lakes Construction. Through this scholarship, we hope to carry on not only his passion for innovative design, but his love of mentoring the next generation.
