It is also the medal won by Jean Luc Moniz and Rebecca La Fortune this week at The Ontario Skills Competition in Waterloo.
Mr. Labriola's two Narley Media Arts students fought off fierce (Yes, I said Fierce) competition from over 20 teams from all across Ontario in the TV and Video Category to capture second spot.
They will be adorned with their medals and shirts today- so if you see them, toss them a smile, pat them on the back, maybe a tip of your cap(even though you shouldn't wear hats in school) or simply look at them with awe.
Ok, that's enough, good job GENE LUCK AND LABECCA.
