Toronto, Ontario — In the tradition of carrying on the legacy of the late Dave Smith, AkzoNobel has presented the Dave Smith Achievement Award to Dorien Lozeau of CSN Black Ace, in St. Paul, Alta.
In observance of the second anniversary of Dave’s passing, AkzoNobel awarded the prize during the 2021 Skills Canada National Competition.
Lozeau’s success was bolstered by his gold medal showing in the car painting competition, in addition to the $2,500 prize from AkzoNobel.
“I am beyond excited to receive the Dave Smith Gold Metal in Paint Award from AkzoNobel,” said Lozeau.
“Being able to take part in a Skills Canada competition is such a great opportunity to use top of the line equipment and meet some great people in the trade. My favourite part of being in the trade is getting to see the end results after hours of work come together.”
