Stars align in sensational Scarborough


Greetings, fellow Scarborough residents. What an incredible couple of weeks we’ve had in Scarborough.

SCRO congratulates the Scarborough Business Association for hosting the largest ever mayor’s lunch at
University of Toronto Scarborough on April 3.

And then, on April 10:

Scarborough stands tall and proud at the Scarborough Walk of Fame!
What an awesome day! SCRO was honoured to host this signature Scarborough
event, where we get to “celebrate community, recognize achievement, and
inspire tomorrow’s leaders”.

Since 2006, the Scarborough Walk of Fame has honoured over 60 exceptional
individuals who hail from Scarborough. Some do amazing things here at home.
Others become ambassadors for Scarborough beyond our borders. They all
wear their Scarborough heritage proudly. And we are so proud of them.
Over 400 of us got to see this, live and in-person at Scarborough Walk of Fame
Court at Scarborough Town Centre.

Didn’t get a chance to join us? Not to worry. It’s all on YouTube. Go to the Scarborough Walk of Fame
website and scroll down to the live stream.

I could provide “colour commentary” but there’s really no need. Our inductees say it better than I ever could.

Have a listen:
2:51:39 Swabir Shariff (Rising Star)
2:55:30 Atqiya Fariha (Rising Star)
3:05:20 Mark Stoddart (Arts & Culture)
3:15:40 Sam Ibrahim (Business)
3:27:10 Marg Middleton (Community)
3:38:10 Camesha Cox (Education)
3:47:26 Shamier Anderson & Stephan James (Entertainment)
4:07:17 The Hon. Pauline Browes (Environment)
4:25:26 Dr. Vivian Rambihar (Health & Science)
4:41:25 Rowan Barrett (Sports)

And have a listen to SWOF “star” Dwayne Morgan displaying his Scarborough pride at 2:26:17.
