ARIDO is delighted to announce the recipients of the 2023 Gary Hewson Scholarship. Created in 2018, the Gary Hewson Scholarship is awarded in memory of an individual with a big personality and even bigger heart, who touched the lives of many in Ontario’s interior design community.
The scholarship is awarded each year to one interior design student from every ARIDO-recognized school who has shown exemplary peer leadership and volunteerism in their community, or the interior design industry. As recipients, they were special guests at the 2023 ARIDO Awards Gala.
