The crème de la crème of the agricultural world gathered in the grand ballroom of the Château Frontenac on October 21 to honor three new inductees to the Quebec Agricultural Hall of Fame.
Tributes were paid to André D. Beaudoin, Charles Vincent and Réjean Vermette (pictured above from left to right), under the watchful eye of the dignitaries in attendance, including the provincial Minister of Agriculture, André Lamontagne.
Charles Vincent (Ph.D.’83) a long-serving Adjunct Professor in the Department of Natural Sciences (Entomology), said he was surprised when he heard the news of his induction into Le Temple de la renommée de l'agriculture du Québec. "Never in a million years did I think I would be recognized like this," said the man who has made it his career goal to reduce the use of insecticides in cultivated environments as much as possible. "What I’ve done is work hard. If I had a message for young people, its to never give up and work for a cause that is bigger than yourself."
