NEW LISKEARD, Ont. -- Grant’s Transport has issued its annual mathematics scholarship to a Grade 12 grad looking to pursue a career as a veterinarian.
Lisa Belanger, a graduate of Timiskaming District Secondary School, will be pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ont. She was the winner of this year’s scholarship, which is rewarded annually to the school’s top university-bound math student.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to provide financial assistance to such a deserving student,” said Gord Grant, president of Grant’s Transport. “With post-secondary tuition and related fees on a steady rise, we feel that it is important for us to continue to support students in the community that has contributed to the success of Grant’s Transport.”
Belanger plans to major in biology and then attend the University of Guelph’s Veterinary College, after which she hopes to practice as a large animal veterinarian. In addition to receiving top marks in math, Belanger also received awards for having the highest standing in biology and business studies along with the Governor General’s Academic medal for outstanding academic achievement in Grades 11 and 12.
The scholarship is issued through the Ontario Trucking Association Education Foundation.
