CHARLOTTETOWN – APM, in collaboration with the PEI Literacy Alliance, has again shown their support for education in the province by contributing to the Alliance’s Bursary Program for adult learners. This year’s recipient is John A. MacLean who is currently studying to write his GED in the coming months as a step towards his ultimate goal of attending NSCC.

This bursary is one of ten awarded annually by the Literacy Alliance. The award is presented to an adult who has struggled with reading and is continuing their education at UPEI or Holland College. This is the sixth consecutive year APM has helped fund this program. APM also participates in the Alliance’s annual PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy held in June of each year.

APM’s Vice President of Human Resources and Corporate Controller Paul Daley was on hand Tuesday to present the bursary to John.

“We strongly support and believe in the schools and programs that promote education on Prince Edward Island. We want to try to lessen the financial burden that students, particularly adult learners, face so they have one less obstacle to overcome while focusing on their studies. John is another outstanding candidate for this bursary and it’s great to see him achieve his goals.”

APM is also an annual contributor to Holland College and the UPEI School of Business. In addition to this, the company awards its own Cody Banks Memorial Bursaries to deserving students each year; since its inauguration 16 years ago, APM has awarded over 100 of these bursaries to deserving students across the country. Moreover, APM was a Diamond Level sponsor of the Canadian Student Leadership Conference this past fall which promoted leadership skills to over 1000 Canadian high school students.

Paul says APM will continue supporting these efforts in the years to come.

“Without a doubt, APM prides itself on these investments in education in our community, it’s a fundamental part of what makes us good corporate citizens.”
