Two schools, École secondaire publique Le Sommet and École secondaire catholique régionale de Hawkesbury, were selected to distribute three scholarships each. The administrators of each school chose the recipients based on various criteria, including academic excellence, generosity and involvement in school life.

“We are incredibly proud to be able to award these students for their dedication and hard work,” says Richard Berry, senior vice-president sales, Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems, North America, in a statement.
