A look back at... The ESC Clermont BS Foundation's Annual Gala
Nearly 200 guests attended the ESC Foundation’s Annual Gala which took place on Tuesday, April 4th. During the evening, the guests were presented with an overview of the Foundation’s missions, axes and actions and an assessment of its 2022-2023 actions. Robin Jund gave a special thanks to the donors on behalf of the students who benefited from the foundation’s scholarships.
In 2022, 87 students benefited from social grants totalling €140,000
Speeches were made by several of the scholarship recipients and musical interludes were provided by ESC student musicians. An “Active Break” was animated by Zoé Benzine, ASM sports educator. This evening immersed all the participants (donor companies, scholarship students, school partners, staff members, journalists) in a warm and sincere atmosphere.
