The names of the people in the photo are L to R: Sheldon Benner, President, Toronto Chapter CAHS, representing CAHS National; Chi Wai (Wilson) Wong, the 2015 winner of the MacRitchie Memorial Scholarship Award; Marilyn Scott, Chief of Staff, Centennial College; and Larry MacRitchie. Larry is the son of Bruce MacRitchie who was unable to attend and who initiated the award in 1980 with CAHS. Bruce wanted to honour his brother Douglas, a CAHS stalwart, who lost his life tragically in an airplane accident while on his way to Fleet Aircraft in Fort Erie to assist in the restoration of a Fleet Cornell aircraft. The award is given to a student who best exemplifies a responsible attitude, combined with acceptable academic standards. Chi Wai Wong is currently enrolled in Centennial Colleges' Aviation Technician – Aircraft Maintenance program.
