Toronto (September 25, 2014) – TransCore Link Logistics today announced the recipients of the company’s scholarship program. Stephanie Weake from Burlington, Ontario and Rachel Barry from Summerside, Prince Edward Island each have been awarded a $2,500 scholarship for demonstrating strong academic achievement, well-roundedness, leadership and tenacity. Meet Stephanie and Rachel.
“The remarkable calibre of applicants made the selection challenging,” says Claudia Milicevic, senior director and general manager of TransCore Link Logistics. “These exceptional students differentiated themselves among applicants academically and through their engagement in school and their desire to help others.”
Stephanie is enrolled in the Concurrent Education program at Brock University and hopes to teach French in a classroom one day. “I want to thank you for this amazing opportunity and promise that your investment in me will help me accomplish all of my dreams,” says Stephanie when told she was selected. “I am one step closer to doing what I want to do and being what I want to be.”
The second scholarship recipient, Rachel, is studying Human Rights and History at St. Thomas University. Just two weeks into her program Rachel shares, “I am having a great time so far…I want to thank you very much for selecting me to receive the scholarship. It will allow me to get my degree while having to worry less about the financial burden of education.”
TransCore Link Logistics hopes that its scholarship will play a part in enabling these driven students to continue their educational pursuits.
