Saint-Romuald, Quebec — When the pandemic hit and management at L’Expert Carrossier Rive-Sud heard that many post-secondary students were being forced to abandon their studies, the collision centre south of Quebec City stepped up to lend some assistance.
Through a collaboration between the shop and a local radio station, L’Expert Carrossier Rive-Sud was able to offer up two $2,500 scholarships to students in their community, to help keep them enrolled.
A committee of seven judges sifted through the more than 300 submissions that asked students to explain how they felt the scholarship would aid in their studies.
The judges decided on Catherine Laflamme, from Montmagny, and Océane Moreau, from L’Islet, as the two most deserving of the combined $5,000 prize.
Management at L’Expert Carrossier Rive-Sud said that “we have developed our corporate culture by rewarding effort, which is why we set up this program, which is directly linked to the foundations of our organization.”
