Fifth edition of Hooked on School Days with an Olympic flavour
Gold Medals for our three Ambassadors
For this 5th edition, we sent an unbeatable trio of perseverance on the ice.
Christian Vachon, of the Christian Vachon Foundation, a citizen who is totally devoted to perseverance, as much in his personal and professional life, as his commitment toward the youth in our schools.
Alexandre Poulin, singer and songwriter, sensitized to the dropout problem during his teaching experience and bearer of inspirational messages for youth.
Alexandre Sills, of the Sherbrooke Phoenix Hockey Club, represented his team. Becoming a player in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (LHJMQ) demands perseverance and determination; Alexandre demonstrated both.
Thank you, gentlemen, for your involvement during this 5th edition of Hooked on School Days.
