Local CRS Scholarship Recipient

Meet Stephen Desroches, one of our 2017/2018 CRS Scholarship Recipients!

Aug 1, 2018

Area of Study:  Bachelor of Commerce, University of Manitoba

Previous Co-op Experience: Dauphin Co-op Mgmt/Admin Trainee, Grocery Clerk

Work Term location: Dauphin Co-op Administration Office

My Future Aspiration: After completion of Bachelor’s Degree I would like to work full-time as an Accountant while obtaining my Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation          

My Work-term Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Dauphin Co-op thus far. Through my previous work experience here, I have built relationships with people from every department and I am familiar with the everyday processes. Many team members are supportive of my education, and it means a lot when they check up on me to see how I’m doing. Dauphin Co-op is extremely community minded and I am proud to work for a company that is focused on giving back to its customers and making our community a better place.

“I would definitely encourage other people to apply for the CRS scholarship. The financial aspect is a great incentive, but what most people don’t see is the value gained from the work experience and knowledge acquired while working for Co-op. The program does more than just provide a summer job, you are able to transfer the theory learned in the classroom to real life experience.” – Stephen Desroches
