Over 135 Employee Child Scholarships Awarded
We are pleased to announces this year's recipients of the J.D. Irving, Limited Employee Child Scholarships.
Each year, each of our business divisions award scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education whose parents are part of the JDI team. This year, that means we are investing more than $135,000 in the education of our employees' children and in the future of the communities where we live and work.
These students are either entering or returning to post-secondary institutions full-time this September. Recipients represent 46 universities, colleges and training institutes across Canada and the U.S..
"We have proudly been supporting the employee child scholarship program for a long time. We have outstanding employees and finding ways to encourage their families' investment in education is important to us," says Linda Speedy, Vice President of Human Resources. "We hire over 900 students each year and the employee child scholarships are a wonderful opportunity to engage with the next generations of leaders. We are excited to see the potential of these inspiring students."
We would like to wish these students, and everyone returning to the classroom, a happy and healthy school year.
