MVIM Scholarship Award Recipients
The Motor Vehicle Industry of Manitoba Inc. Scholarship Banquet and Presentations event was held on Wednesday, September 15, 2021. Forty scholarships in the amount of $1000.00 were awarded to secondary and post-secondary students preparing for Red Seal Certification as Automotive Mechanical Technicians; Automotive Collision Repair Technicians; Automotive Collision Refinishing Technicians; Heavy Duty Mechanical Technicians. Congratulatory greetings were brought to the recipients by Jeff Wharton, Minister of Crown Services and Eric Herbelin, President of Manitoba Public Insurance.
Thank you to the individuals, families and corporations that have chosen to establish legacy scholarships, held in perpetuity by The Winnipeg Foundations, to assist today’s students – tomorrow’s industry leaders and skilled technicians that will keep all of us “on the road” in the future whether the vehicles be gas or electric. The commitment to learning to be the “best” and the pride that is apparent when the scholarship recipients speak of their work is truly inspiring.
In addition to the annual scholarships which are open to the students each year of their schooling (recipients speak of the difference the scholarship has made through-out their training), MAC Tools also provides each recipient with a special offer for purchase of tools.
Congratulations to all Scholarship Recipients. The families and friends who attended the event with you, were clearly proud. Thank you also to all the sponsors and volunteers who helped make the evening a true acknowledgement of your efforts and dedication to your chosen career.
