On March 2 at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre, Pepin Academies—a public, independent, 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, tuition-free charter school consisting of three campuses—held a gala with a silent auction in celebration of its 20th anniversary, and all those years have been in support of students with learning and learning-related disabilities. The funds raised, thanks to many sponsors like SRD Engineers, will greatly help its mission.
“Twenty years ago, Pepin Academies was created because of the lack of an educational foundation for children with disabilities in our community,” said Tom Pepin, Cofounder of Pepin Academies and Chairman Emeritus of the Pepin Academies Foundation. “We would not be where we are today without the enormous support and passion from our community partners like SRD Engineers. It amazes me every day to see how far we’ve come and what the future holds.”
