Mrs Francine Ruest Jutras, Chair of the Board of Directors of the UQTR, commented that for a long time, Soucy has made education one of its social involvement priorities. This commitment is now translated by an unwavering support and significant financial engagement towards the UQTR in the realization of the campus of Drummondville.
