The Glengarry News - - News -

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.”
