Brandon, Man. – April 19, 2022 – The latest recipient of the BDM Scholarship award goes to Priyanka Chaudhary, spouse of UFCW 832 member Deep Chaudhary, who works at Maple Leaf Foods.
“I am extremely honoured to receive this award after immigrating to Canada just two years ago,” says the Roberston College Accounting student. “In India, I worked in accounting and administration, but upon settling in Manitoba, I realized I needed Canadian credentials to work in the industry and this scholarship will help me attain that goal.”
