A tradition of excellence from generation to generation

A third-generation manager of a family business producing sawdust for animal litter and recycled wood mulch, Mr. Jutras stood out from about twenty candidates, due to the quality of his candidacy file and the proof of his entrepreneurship.

Mr. Jutras was therefore awarded a scholarship valued at $13,750, representing half the annual enrollment fees of the two-year skills development program dedicated to training of the next generation of entrepreneurs. He becomes the second winner of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Scholarship after Nathalie Ashby, President and Chief Executive Officer of CIBLE Solutions d’affaires, who had been selected to receive the very first scholarship last year.

A scholarship soon offered for 2013-2014

Congratulations to Kevin Jutras, and the partners and professionals who encouraged him in the nomination process!

We also invite you to watch for the upcoming announcement concerning the call for candidacies for the 2013-2014 edition of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Scholarship!
