Congratulations to Mathieu Larocque, of “la Polyvalente Marie-Esther” in Shippagan and to Marie-Christine Arpin, of “l’École Marie-Gaétane” in Kedgwick, grade 12 students who have each been awarded a bursary in the amount of $1,000 from the Université de Moncton during the 15th annual Provincial French Pride Week. Both Mathieu and Marie-Christine were awarded this bursary after winning first place amongst the participants to the literary contest. In order to be considered, the essays submitted had to express a thought or opinion and be centered around the theme of « En français je suis né, née, en français je vivrai » (I was born in French, and I’ll live in French).

We wish them both great success in their university studies.
