TORONTO, Ont. — The top two academic achievers in the truck-trailer service unit of Conestoga College’s Motive Power Fundamentals program were awarded with Glasvan Great Dane Truck Trailer Service Technician scholarships May 29. Connor Irwin was recognized for being the top practical student, while Sean Dixon was honoured for being the most improved student. The scholarships, which will be used to fund the students’ ongoing education, were presented at the 4th Annual Trades and Apprenticeship Awards Ceremony hosted by Conestoga College in Waterloo.
“We see this as a win-win opportunity,” says Paul Cobham, president of Glasvan Trailers of Mississauga. “The students appreciate the additional funding to help them continue their apprenticeships and are given a little extra reward for their hard work and dedication.” Cobham also notes that the students’ “exposure to the trucking industry as a possible employer in the future is a step in the right direction.”
The winners of the Glasvan Great Dane scholarships are selected by Conestoga College using academic performance as the primary criterion. The Glasvan Great Dane Truck Trailer Service Technician Scholarship is funded by an endowment established by Glasvan Trailers, and is administered by the OTA Education Foundation.
