Congratulations to Keith Collinson and Ryan Moffatt, the 2018 recipients of the Mississauga Waterfront Festival Scholarship! These two exemplary students from the Live Event & Concert Production Diploma Program were presented with their $2,000 awards at the festival by Metalworks Founder Gil Moore; Mayor Bonnie Crombie; founding Mayor of Mississauga Hazel McCallion; Chairperson of the Mississauga Waterfront Festival Pat Anderson; and Metalworks Institute’s Director of Student Services, Candice Mohacsi.
In addition to the cash prizes, these deserving scholarship recipients were given the opportunity to join the Metalworks Production Group crew at the festival, working alongside industry veterans, MWI alumni, and three other current Metalworks students. Current students Kyle Raven and Michael Antaya, from the Audio Production & Engineering and Professional Sound & Business (Studio Production Major) Diploma Programs, got some live experience working as Production Assistants, and Kennedy Lucas, also from the Professional Sound & Business (Studio Production Major) Diploma Program, was the Stage Manager for the Heritage Stage.
