New Okanagan College scholarship created in wine giant's name

McWatters legacy carries on

A new scholarship has been created in the name of Harry McWatters, and those behind it are hoping others will help contribute to the fund.

McWatters was an icon on the Okanagan wine scene, and his passing last year left a void that will never be filled. In an effort to continue his legacy, Chefs’ Table Society has teamed up with the Okanagan College Foundation for a scholarship that will be given to wine or tourism students who are participating in an international education experience.

“Harry’s mentorship is rightly legendary,” Okanagan College School of Business associate dean Jonathan Rouse said in a press release.

“He always had his eye on emerging talent in the business, and vigorously mentored young people through his roles as founder of the BC Wine Institute and his many ongoing industry affiliations.”
