The 2017 Canadian Military Police Association Scholarship competition was announced on 30 April 2017, and closed on 31 July 2017. A committee of three members, representing a cross section of the Association, was convened to review and grade the applications in order to determine the winners. Among the criteria that were considered in assessing points are academic performance and potential; community involvement; financial need; and quality of the essay. This year, the applications were reviewed by Maj Steeve Gregoire, CWO Crystal Krammer, and Sgt(Ret’d) Kaven Daigle.
The winner of the University Scholarship was Alexis Raymond, son of CWO(Ret’d) Serge Raymond. Alexis has demonstrated outstanding academic performance and has been active with his school community and sports programs. He has been accepted into a “Baccalauréat en science commerciales spécialisé en comptabilité (coop)” at Ottawa University. He will be presented with a cheque for $1000 by Maj Steeve Gregoire at a later date this year.
The winner of the College Scholarship was Genevieve Langlois, daughter of WO Frederick Langlois. In addition to a solid academic performance, Genevieve demonstrated a strong community and school involvement with multiple organizations. She has also dedicated much of her teenage years with the Army Cadets and achieved many distinctions to recognize top performance and dedication. Genevieve will be taking a 2-year program with Georgian College in Pre-Health Sciences or Massage Therapy. She will be presented with a cheque for $1000 by CWO Crystal Krammer at a later date this year.
On behalf of the CMPA President, LCol (Ret’d) Douglas Boot, we offer both Genevieve and Alexis our most sincere congratulations and best wishes for their education and future endeavours.
