The Kevin Couvillon Memorial Award has been generously donated by the family of Kevin Couvillon, who felt very strongly that Kevin’s experience at OIART’s audio and music production school was life changing for him. Kevin graduated OIART in 2005 and passed away in the fall of 2010 at 26 after a lengthy and courageous battle with leukemia. We honour him by recognizing the spirit of optimism, dedication and perseverance that Kevin displayed starting out his audio career in a graduate from the previous year’s class.  This winner is 2015 graduate Taylor Cambridge, who decided to remain in London after graduation. When a full time position was unavailable, Taylor volunteered, sought advice, made professional relationships and worked part time in live audio while continuing to work around her day job. Her hard work culminated in not one but two full time job offers from local companies to choose between within the last three months. She accepted a position at Freeman Audio Visual in London, and she is pictured on left here with her manager, Dan McGrath. Congratulations Taylor!
