Quebec City – November 18, 2022 – UFCW 500 member, and CÉGEP Garneau student Marika Lapierre, is intent on accomplishing her goal of becoming a speech-language pathologist and as the latest recipient of the BDM scholarship award she will have $1,000 in financial assistance to help her along the way.
“I had to adapt quickly in my first semester at school and working part-time while being a full-time student was not always easy,” says Lapierre. “But this award will certainly alleviate some of the financial pressure and allow me to focus on my studies.”
