Congratulations to Samuel Poulin of the Sherbrooke Phoenix for graduating with honours in the Grade 12 Pre-University Science Program. Sam accomplished what very few athletes can do in the QMJHL. He graduated with an Ontario Secondary School diploma in the most challenging academic program in just 15 months. Considering his extremely busy schedule in the QMJHL, representing Team Canada at the U17 2019 Word Cup and getting drafted 21st over all by the Pittsburgh Penguins at the 2019 NHL draft, his accomplishment is a tremendous attribute to his focus and dedication to education. We are proud of Sam and we can attest that he is a true ambassador for the sport of hockey and all aspiring student athletes. Sam is now attending the University of Sherbrooke.
We would also like to mention the great dedication of The Sherbrooke Phoenix's educational counsellor, Clovis Langlois Boucher and general manager, Jocelyn Thibeault, for their continued mission of prioritizing education within their organization.
