Proof of SMi’s social and environmental commitment
At the ceremony organized by the Centre for Environmental and Sustainable Development Studies (CUFE) of the Université de Sherbrooke, SMi was one of four contributors to give scholarships or Awards of Excellence to 29 students.
This event is held to reward the excellence of the students of the 1st and 2nd cycles of the environmental and sustainable development programs. This ceremony offers the opportunity to honor their continued hard work, commitment and achievements that are the pride of CUFE and the Université de Sherbrooke.
Mr. Guy Fouquet, SMi’s Vice President – Planning, Environment and Earth Sciences gave awards to Ms Anouk Lavoie-Isebaert and Mr. Alexandre Charron on behalf of S.M. Group Fund, created in 1993.
“I am very grateful to the S.M. Group which recognizes the excellence of the environment students at the Université de Sherbrooke. It is certain that this award will help me complete my master’s degree, and I consider myself very lucky to have your support,” said Mr. Alexander Charron after he received his award.
For SMi, to reward the efforts of students represents an investment in the future because at the end of their studies, they will not only have the required environmental skills but also become real agents of change for society.
