Ryerson School of Media Announces New Award
The RTA School of Media at Ryerson University is pleased to announce a new award that recognizes individuals from diverse backgrounds. The Marci Ien and Dwight Drummond Award celebrates students from under-represented and marginalized communities who show great potential in any three of RTA's programs.
Marci Ien and Dwight Drummond, both influential figures in Toronto’s media industry, share a passion for education. Their success stories, and the help they received while at RTA, contributed to their decision to offer the award. Drummond, co-host of CBC News Toronto, was a recipient of the Lorne Greene Award for the recognition of Canadian talent while at RTA. He recalls, “It came at a time when I was worried about how I was going to pay for the books for my classes. It gave me just the right amount I needed to cover the costs. I just remember the incredible sense of relief I had. It was like somebody was looking out for me. I knew that if I was ever in a position to do that for someone else I would. This award is my opportunity to pay it forward.”
