The ceremony for the Quebec Lieutenant Governor's Awards took place on May 5, 2013 at the Collège Regina Assumpta in Montreal. This year, two FMT students received the Lieutenant-Governor's Youth Medal: Diane Maheu and Mathieu Rouleau. The Youth Medal is awarded annually to students who, demonstrated by their generous actions, serve as a source of inspiration for other youth. Both Diane and Mathieu exercised leadership in their communities. Congratulations!
