Launch of the 2015 HSD

The 6th edition of Hooked on School Days was launched Monday, February 16 at a press conference at the Armand-Nadeau Pavilion in Sherbrooke.

Lucie Laflamme and Christian Provencher, TECIÉ co-chairs,  launched the Estrie HSD accompanied by the 2015 HSD Edition Ambassador Marie-Andrée Fortin.

As a teacher and Outdoor Adventure Guide, Marie-Andrée Fortin has accomplished a great feat by covering more than 2,000 kilometers on cross-country skis from Montreal to Kuujjuaq during the Karibu project last year. Throughout the week of Hooked on School Days, the 2015 JPS Estrie Ambassador will share her vision of perseverance with the students of the region.
Marie-Andrée challenged the 40 people present at the press conference ... Look at the photos on the JPS Estrie.ca site.
