School perseverance video
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.
