Chancellor thanks GCU donors

Gordon Masterton with Khalid Abdulrahim

LORD Gus Macdonald, Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University, has thanked two major GCU donors with a tour and lunch at the House of Lords.

The event was organised for alumnus Khalid Abdulrahim, CEO and Chairman of Cebarco, the multibillion dollar construction company responsible for the Abu Dhabi F1 circuit at YAS Island, who travelled from Bahrain for the occasion, and honorary graduate of Gordon Masterton OBE, Vice President of Jacobs, a global engineering consultancy.

The Chancellor’s guests have both established scholarship programmes for students at the University’s School of Built and Natural Environment.

The bringing together of these donors and the University's Chancellor marked the first meeting of the Chancellor's Circle - a donor recognition club which will grow as more supporters get behind the University.
