Thanks to his GPA of 4.13 (a perfect score is 4.3), Jean-Michel Langlois sat down to dinner in Toronto on November 4 with Canada's business elite.
He was chosen as a recipient of a $5,000 scholarship from the Futures Fund for Developing Outstanding Leadership. The Fund was established in 1997 when it was decided that the proceeds from the dinner to honour Canada's outstanding CEO of the year would go into a scholarship fund. Recipients are flown to Toronto to be guests at the dinner at the Royal York Hotel.
Langlois was chosen by Matthew Barrett, recent recipient of an honorary degree from Concordia, formerly head of the Bank of Montreal and now head of Barclays PLC.
As well as being an outstanding student, Langlois is a member
of the Concordia Accounting Society (CAS), and is kept busy
organizing firm visits, cocktail receptions, and participating in
the CAS's tax service. He is also a member of the Concordia
Animal Rights Association, and a volunteer for the Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the World Wildlife Fund.
