Quiz winners claim posters and prizes

A retiree and a current student each claimed prizes in the quizzes published by DailyNews to mark Black History – Black Futures month.

Linda Menard-Watt, a retiree from Information Technology Services, claimed top honours Feb. 21 by having her entry drawn from all those which correctly noted that Black nationalist leader Marcus Garvey gave a talk in Windsor in 1937, Mary McCleod Bethune was denied accommodation by a Windsor hotel while in the city for 1954 Emancipation Day celebrations, and Sharon Burey was the first woman and first Black senator from Windsor.

Law major Angie Budhwa won the Feb. 26 contest, identifying Elijah McCoy as holder of 57 patents, Cornelius Langston Henderson as an engineer who contributed to the construction of the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, and Fred Thomas as the athletic subject of a downtown mural.

Each won a poster by artist Robert Small as well as a collection of swag from the University of Windsor Alumni Association.
