2019 Award Recipients

Skills Sheridan Donors

Industry support is critical in our student’s learning and this support is shown in many different ways; awards, coop opportunities and competitions, to name a few. Regardless of the focus, all of our donors are immensely valued and greatly appreciated.

We want to acknowledge the role of our industry partners in our Skills Sheridan competition, a competition fashioned after Skills Ontario. Skills Sheridan allows students the opportunity to participate in a Skills competition, showcase their talent, and compete to win prizes. It’s an event that has been growing for several years and we’re so pleased by the widespread support of this event.

Skills Sheridan would not have been possible without the generous support of our industry and internal partners. A sincere ‘thank you’ goes out to the 2020 Skills Sheridan Industry partners:

  • Alexander Metals and Alloys
  • AYVA Educational Solutions
  • Aztec Electrical Supply and Milwaukee
  • Cooling Tower Maintenance Inc. (CTM)
