Quebec City, Quebec – The Quebec division of AIA Canada has announced the recipients of this year’s High Fives For Kids Foundation scholarship.
Typically announced at the Gala Méritas, the three recipients were contacted by AIA via email to announce that they had been selected for the $500 scholarship.
The three recipients of the scholarship are Marc-Jebson Caraoa Balintec, an auto mechanic at the ÉMÉMM; Kevin Gilbert, car mechanic at the CFP of Williams Clay; and Morneau-Lussier, CFP Compétence-de-la-Rive-Sud, a bodyshop training institute.
In collaboration with teachers and directors of vocational training centres offering auto mechanics and body shop programs, AIA selected students who met criteria established by the Comité éducation travail en équipement motorisé du Montréal métropolitain (CÉTÉMM) to be eligible for a draw to receive an AIA High Fives for Kids Foundation scholarship.
The High Fives for Kids Foundation has been supporting students looking to enter the auto industry since 2005.
The foundation supports initiatives outside the industry as well, such as buying a wheelchair, sending kids with diabetes or a disability to a summer camp, rebuilding a community centre, or helping a local hospital for children.
