Degree for MP
St. Lawrence College has awarded an honorary diploma to Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MP Guy Lauzon.
“As one of the longest serving politicians in the Conservative party, Guy has represented the riding for 15 years,” says college representative Laura Tulchinsky. “He recently announced he will not be seeking reelection this fall. Before entering politics, Guy spent more than 22 years in the federal public service and served as a local union president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada. During the 1990s, he served as chair of the local United Way chapter and multiple sclerosis research funding campaigns.” Each year, SLC “recognizes the outstanding achievements of individuals or organizations whose accomplishments are of such excellence, inspiration and leadership that they serve as an example for the students and graduates of our college with our honorary diplomas.” For his part, Mr. Lauzon was humbled by the gesture. “I have never received a diploma from any level of study or educational institution,” he said. “I am living proof that anything is possible when you believe.”
