Sher­brooke em­ploy­ees re­ceive Ju­bilee Medals

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

In recog­ni­tion of their ef­forts in the re­build­ing of Haiti, two Sher­brooke em­ploy­ees, Luc Ro­bil­lard and An­dré Cor­riveau, both from Sher­brooke’s ur­ban plan­ning of­fice, were awarded Di­a­mond Ju­bilee Medals on Fe­bru­ary 28th. Be­tween July 2011 and Novem­ber 2012, the two men went to Haiti five times, stay­ing for two week in­ter­vals to train a team of Haitians in ge­o­mat­ics as part of a pro­gram that aims to im­prove the struc­ture of mu­nic­i­pal or­ga­ni­za­tions af­fected by the 2010 earth­quake.

Mr. Ro­bil­lard and Cor­riveau taught the prin­ci­ples of ge­o­mat­ics as well as helped to put in place in­fra­struc­tures and tools to as­sure the col­lec­tion of facts. Th­ese new com­pe­ten­cies ac­quired by the group of stu­dents will al­low them to par­tic­i­pate in the re­in­force­ment of the mu­nic­i­pal struc­tures in the com­mu­ni­ties of Gressier, Leogagne, Petit-Goave and GrandGoave.
