Graduate Mike Crisolago sent a lovely email last week to tell us he is working full time (with benefits!) at Hostopia managing their photography and imaging needs, using skills he learned in photojournalism class.
|Mike Crisolago (l), Michelle Nash, Meghan Housely at Centennial College.|
A versatile student (that's him on the left during orientation at Centennial with Michelle Nash and Meghan Housley) with a background in theatre, Mike's piece about 20 books every tween and teen should read, was mentioned in the New Yorker. Now that story he wrote, while on internship with Canadian Family, has been nominated for the Canadian Online Publishing Awards.
His story is category 8 in the finalists. The award is announced October 20th.In his spare time, Mike is freelancing for Canadian Family, and Quill and Quire, making slideshows, plus maintaining his own personal portfolio page, and he is doing his thing one year out of j-school.
I just wanted to write to let you all know because none of the above would ever have come to pass without the education, guidance and support of the Centennial staff. So a huge THANK YOU to all of you! All the best for this school year! I hope the students at the school now appreciate the opportunities that are about to open to them.
Another email came this week from graduate Stephen Humphrey.
He also got stung in the face while photographing a beehive this summer!

He writes: I'm stretching what you taught me as far as I can right now. Thanks for opening my mind to possibilities.
