Kéroul bestows the 2012 Michel Carpentier Award on Marie-Michèle Tremblay, the heart and soul of Welcoming Ways
Montreal, September 20, 2012
It was during its annual general meeting that Kéroul revealed the name of the twelfth person to earn its Michel Carpentier Award, which recognizes those who have made an outstanding contribution to Kéroul's mission.
This year, the honour was conferred on Marie-Michèle Tremblay, for her tireless dedication and remarkable contribution to developing the Welcoming Ways training program over the last 25 years.
During the award presentation, Kéroul's chairwoman, Isabelle Ducharme, made special mention of the fact that Ms. Tremblay was the first person to update the training program when she joined the organization in 1987. Tremblay also gave training sessions and hired trainers in several regions so the program could be offered province-wide. She managed to adapt the program content to the needs of various businesses who had requested it, most notably Air Canada and the Casino de Montréal.
Tremblay has always believed firmly that the training sessions must be given by people with disabilities. She herself has lived with a motor impairment, and, in recent years, has been living with a visual impairment as well.
For a long time yet, Kéroul's clients and partners will benefit from Tremblay's generous and intelligent contributions to the development of the organization's training programs.
Created by Kéroul in 2001, this annual award pays tribute to Michel Carpentier, a man of great vision and skill, who devoted his career to the Québec civil service.
