An appeal from the Cégep Heritage College Foundation
James Shea, Chair of the WQSB , President RAWQ and Administrator of the Cégep Heritage College Foundation
Having been raised in a single-parent family with few resources, I benefitted from the sound advice, trust and commitment of others. I believe that it is now our responsibility to encourage our youth’s educational pursuits. Payback will come when these students help each other, their families and our community. Good deeds are always rewarded!
As a member of the Heritage College Board of Governors and a Foundation administrator, I recognize that significant community members are engaged in our Foundation. I wish to play a connecting role within our community.
Being from the Pontiac and a lifelong resident of Québec, I believe that our commitment to education is critical to our survival in our community. I must show leadership by “walking the talk”. Not only do I have to be a role model, I believe that I must encourage graduates and other parents to contribute their talents to our cause.
Marcel Proulx, Real Estate Broker
Chair of the Cégep Heritage College Foundation
I am honored to be the Chair of the Cégep Heritage College Foundation. Throughout my 12 years of involvement in the Hull-Aylmer region as Member of Parliament, I supported Heritage College and remain convinced of its significant importance to our youth.
Cégep Heritage College is a jewel in our community and is one of the best kept secrets in the Outaouais!
Heritage’s programs appeal to over 1200 students. It is a true asset for our region facilitating career opportunities for both English and French secondary school graduates.
Participation in college life plays a crucial role. Students need encouragement to pursue their academic goals. Our Foundation is helping by addressing urgent needs to safeguard the Heritage experience.
Our major fundraising campaign is over the half-way mark of its $1 million goal and we are grateful to all donors.
If you or a loved one has been touched by the exceptional learning experience offered by Cégep Heritage College, please join us in giving back. Alumni, parents, pioneers and the local community can help our Foundation.
