|EMSB EMPLOYEE DESIGNED POSTER CHOSEN TO BE DISPLAYED AT MCCORD MUSEUM|
MONTREAL, MARCH 9, 2016 - A poster designed by Meghan Dove, an evening caretaker at the English Montreal School Board Administration Building, was one of 15 chosen by the Société des designers graphiques du Québec to be on display at a vernissage at the McCord Museum from March 16 to April 3. This is part of a competition for design students in Quebec.
Of the 30 posters that were chosen to be part of the vernissage, five of them came from students at Dawson College, where Ms. Dove also attends.
“As someone from Ontario who learned most of my French after moving to Montreal eight years ago, I love the fact that several students from an English college have succeeded in a predominantly francophone competition,” said Ms. Dove, who recently designed the EMSB Career Fair publication. “The fact that a group of students from one of the few anglophone CEGEPs in Quebec did so well in the competition really speaks to the bilingualism of Quebec and the opportunities that exist here. As an employee of the English Montreal School Board, it reinforces the importance of English education in the province.”
