Self-identified Métis youth Devin Emerson has graduated as Valedictorian from the Pipedream Welding program from Niagara College. This apprenticeship program was in partnership with the Niagara Peninsula Aboriginal Area Management Board.

The MNO Niagara Region Métis Council (NRMC) is so proud of Devin for completing this course top of his class! We wish him luck in his future endeavors. This is a start to an amazing career!

Below is the lovely message his mother, Marie Jameson sent to the MNO NRMC Council:

I want to thank the Niagara Region Métis [Council] for emailing the notice about the Pipedream Welding course a few months back. If it wasn’t for that email my son would have waited a very long time to follow his dream. His graduation was today and he was the class Pipedreams 2016 Valedictorian. Again thank you so much.
