NEW LISKEARD, Ont. — Grant’s Transport has awarded its second annual academic scholarship under the OTA Education Foundation’s endowed scholarship program. The 2008 winner is Tin Li, a resident of Temagami, who received the scholarship in recognition of his academic success in all math courses in his graduating year. The scholarship is awarded annually to the top university-bound math student at Timiskaming District Secondary School, located in New Liskeard, Ont.

Li will be studying biochemistry at the University of Toronto, and hopes one day to attend medical school to become a doctor. Given the shortage of doctors in more remote areas, he also hopes to provide medical services in northern Ontario. While Li is being recognized for his excellence in mathematics, his average mark in grade 12 for all courses was in the mid-90% range.

“Once again, we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to a local student who is pursuing a university education” says Gord Grant, president of Grant’s Transport. “We see this as a win-win situation. We are once again assisting a deserving student with his education while at the same time giving back to the community that has contributed to the success of Grant’s Transport for more than 60 years.”

The Grant’s Transport Math Scholarship Award is awarded annually and funded by an endowed fund administered by the OTA Education Foundation.
