Mr. Speaker, the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation has announced its Excellence Awards for 2003-04.
One hundred and twenty Cegep graduates in Quebec have been given the Excellence Award in recognition of their academic achievement, service to the community, leadership, and interest in innovation.
I would like to congratulate one young man from my riding, Marc-André Marois, from the Cégep de Granby Haute-Yamaska, who received an Excellence Award.
Receiving such an award is a high point in a student's life. It recognizes the academic achievement of our young people.
A Government of Canada initiative, these awards are a major investment in the future of our students. They are a excellent means of promoting academic excellence.
Once again, I congratulate Marc-André. He is a prime example of the fact that Canada's future lies in its youth.
