The Chevalier Award Scholarship – $2,500.00 (Canadian Funds)
The late Jacques Chevalier served the association as Executive Director for about 30 years, retiring in 1988. He carried out his responsibilities with distinction and competence, but his warm personality, high ideals and sense of commitment infused the association with a spirit of “family.” He did all that was required to be done very well, but he consistently went beyond that and gave of himself in a way that enriched our association and the lives of those he touched. In this he was ably assisted and encouraged by his wife, the late Jessie Chevalier.
The purpose of this award is:
a) to draw to the attention of students at University level in engineering and physical sciences courses that the opportunity of a university education provides more than academic challenge, and
b) to recognize the student whose extracurricular contributions and accomplishments have been outstanding, and
c) in so doing, to fittingly honour the memory and achievements of Jacques and Jessie Chevalier.
