On May 21, Mr. Bernard Drainville presented the medal of the National Assembly of Quebec to Mr. Serge Brasset to highlight the commitment and dedication of the CEO of Édouard-Montpetit. After more than nine years in the management of CEGEP and nearly 40 years in the service of education, Mr. Brasset will retire at the end of this school year.
The member’s inscription on this medal recalls the recognition and appreciation of the young people and the people of the region: “To Serge Brasset who gave us so much. Example of dedication and public service. Your leadership was beautiful, laughing, inspiring. “In addition to his eloquent career in the college network, Mr. Brasset has been heavily involved in numerous boards of directors, including the Chamber of Commerce, The Aeronautics Technology Center, the Montérégie Labor Market Partners Council, Longueuil Economic Development, the Théâtre de la ville and the United Way.
