2015 CNIB Scholarship Winner – Alisha Oliver!

The Canadian National Institute for the Blind Scholarship was established by JAZZ.FM91 in memory of Jeff Healey, following his passing in 2008. The annual award is given to a visually impaired student who is pursuing music education at the post-secondary level.

This year’s recipient is vocalist Alisha Oliver, who studies at Humber College in Toronto. JAZZ.FM91 Board Chair Bernie Webber presented the award to Alisha at our Jazz Lives concert on April 30th at Koerner Hall.

This award is funded through proceeds from the Jazz Lives concert, so thank you to everyone who attended the concert! Your efforts contribute to the success of emerging artists in our community!
