10 10 EU AWARDS EU AWARDS The Saint Bernard Pass Charitable Foundation was formed in 2001 and its main objective is to bring clean water and water treatment facilities to those in need worldwide. From its location in Canada s Northwest Territories, the foundation is exploring the concept of shipping ice melt via tankers to parts of the world that are in desperate need of water. It is a complex operation but they are making dramatic headway. The safety and accessibility of drinking water is a major concern throughout the world. Health risks arise from consumption of water contaminated with infectious agents, toxic chemicals and radiological hazards. Over the years, Saint Bernard Pass Charitable Foundation has been active in the exploration and drilling of water wells in third world countries as well as the building of facilities to treat water. This is the foundation s main mission. In addition, the foundation began an initiative to give six individual awards at each of the European University annual commencement ceremonies in Spain, Switzerland and Germany. These awards recognize substantial efforts in corporate responsibility, sustainability, leadership, social responsibility, family business management and a special award to the top graduate who exemplifies innovative entrepreneurship. Chance Saint-Marché, financial director of the foundation and EU alumnus, BA 2010 and MBA 2012, speaks of the respect and dedication he and the Saint-Marché family have for European University and its student body: Today as you look to the left and to the right of where you are seated, you will come to understand what makes European University so amazing. It is not just the university president or the great faculty you have learned from, but it is us. Us is a powerful word as it represents the entire EU student body; from the beginning of the very first graduating class to today and beyond. Do not forget us, as it is us who you will come across in your business life. It is us you can call upon for that job interview or to help open a door on a business transaction. When you stumble, it will be us who will help you get back on your feet, brush you off and get you going again. In the world after EU, it is us who look down at our fellow EU alumni, extend our hands to them, and help each other get to the top of this competitive world. I wish the graduating class of 2014 only the best in the pursuit of their dreams and endeavors.
