Recognizing student athletes who are making a difference
Gildan recognized six young student-athletes during the annual Foundation of Athletes for Excellence in Quebec (FAEQ) gala on November 29. The outstanding student athletes achieved strong athletic performance and outstanding academic results while demonstrating strong leadership in their communities. This year, the Gildan Leadership Category bursaries totalling $12,000 were presented to university students to support their continued academic and athletic endeavours.
For the 12th year, Gildan is proud to be a partner of the Foundation for Athletes of Excellence in Québec (FAEQ) in recognizing outstanding student athletes that combine strong athletic performances with excellent academic results. For the past several years Gildan has sponsored the Leadership Category which adds an extra dimension for students that demonstrate leadership skills in creating community based programs that deliver a benefit to society.
For the 11th year, Gildan supports the Fondation de l’athlète d’excellence du Québec (FAEQ) with the contribution of five scholarship bursaries to young athletes. The “Gildan Leadership Scholarship” is offered to student athletes who have not only distinguished themselves on the field and in the classroom, but who have also gone that extra step by playing leadership roles within their communities.
