Grant's Transport recently awarded a math scholarship to Samantha Schmidt.
HAILEYBURY, Ont. — Grant’s Transport has awarded a scholarship to a northern Ontario student who plans to pursue an education in mathematics.
Samantha Schmidt of New Liskeard, Ont. earned the scholarship by achieving the highest overall average in mathematics courses of all candidates.
Grant’s Transport has been awarding the scholarship for four years. The scholarship is administered by the Ontario Trucking Association Education Foundation.
Schmidt recently graduated from Timiskaming District Secondary School and plans to attend the University of Waterloo, where she’ll study mathematical physics.
She’s a consistent honour roll student and has performed well in several math-related competitions. She was also a provincial medalist in the Sun Life Financial Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge. She hopes to embark on a research career at the Institute of Quantum Computing or the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics.
“By all accounts, Samantha is a very deserving student of the Grant’s Transport Mathematics Scholarship, and we are once again pleased to provide some financial assistance to a local student who has demonstrated such an impressive commitment to her education,” said Gord Grant, president of Grant’s Transport. “It is a great feeling to be able to give back to our community in a relatively small, but important way.”
