Mitchell McCloy

Mitchell is a very positive, respectful and genuine student. He is a hard worker both in academics and in helping to organize events around his school. This makes him a great role model to his peers. He has a strong passion for music and took this passion and turned it into an opportunity to help others around the world this year as he organized a two night event at his school, hosting six bands to raise money for his favourite charity, the Playing for Change Foundation. This foundation was formed to support and promote Arts and Music education around the world. The funds provide instruments, facilities and wages for music and arts education programs in third world countries. Mitchell believes that music can bring people together and can provide a chance for personal expression that may not otherwise be available to them. This year’s event at school was very successful and Mitchell plans to organize again next year, hopefully on a larger scale so that he can continue to support music education for all.
