SUDBURY – Ken Salah, the Coordinator of Cambrian College’s Theatre Arts Technical Production program, has been recognized for his work by Laurentian University and Thorneloe, one of LU’s federated universities.
Sonia Del Missier, Cambrian College’s Vice President, Academic, isn’t surprised by this recent accolade.
“Our faculty members combine years of experience in the field, with a desire to teach the next generation of employees and entrepreneurs,” she says. “The experiences our teachers bring into the classroom translate into high-quality education for the students, built on a thorough understanding of the subject matter and strong interpersonal relationships.”
Salah was awarded Thorneloe’s Honorary Fellowship in recognition of his important contributions to theatre production in the Sudbury community and his partnership in Thorneloe’s Mainstage co-productions, which produces edgy and exciting theatre that fosters and promotes professional opportunities for local theatre artists and behind-the-scenes production people, including students in Cambrian College’s Theatre program.
“Our students’ education goes beyond the classroom,” Del Missier continues. “Teachers take education to a new level by providing hands-on learning experiences in the community, which give students real-world experience that is highly-valued by employers.”
Salah was honoured at Thorneloe University’s convocation ceremony, which took place Thursday, October 9.
