School per­se­ver­ance video

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

TheCar­refour Je­unesseEm­ploi Mem­phrem­a­gog (CJE) launched a new video, last Thurs­day, about the re­al­i­ties of not fin­ish­ing high school. En­ti­tled “Le round de la per­se­ver­ance”, the video presents tes­ti­mo­ni­als from sev­eral young adults who dropped out of high school. Schools in the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC will have ac­cess to the video and it can also be viewed on the web­sites of CJE and TVCo­geco Ma­gog. The video was made thanks to grants from the Des­jardins Caisse du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog, TVCo­geco Ma­gog, and MNA Pierre Reid. Al­though the video was only pro­duced in French, the East­ern Town­ships School Board also con­trib­uted to­wards the pro­ject. Seen in the photo are (l. to r.) Louise Fel­ton, vice-pres­i­dent of the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog, video par­tic­i­pants Marc-An­dré Gagnon, Is­abelle Simp­son and Alexan­dre Roy, and CJE Di­rec­tor Josée Boily. Ab­sent for the photo was video par­tic­i­pant An­drea Hol­ster.
