SYDNEY, N.S. — A new scholarship honouring the memory of Kevin Hillman of Hillman’s Transfer is now being offered by Cape Breton University.

Hillman, grandson of current Hillman’s Transfer owner Eddie Hillman, died in a boating accident on July 18, 2010. He was 28.

At the time of his death, Hillman was working with his grandfather in the family business, having received his Bachelor of Business Administration from CBU in 2006.

“Through this scholarship, the memory of Kevin and his zest for life will live on and assist CBU studentathletes pursue their dreams of obtaining a university education and playing a sport that they love,” said Tom MacDonald, member of the Creating Champions Committee at CBU, and owner of Tom MacDonald Trucking. “Kevin’s motto of hard work and perseverance go hand and hand with hard working athletes who strive to be the best they can be. At this time, I would ask you to consider donating to this worthy cause and helping future students become leaders of tomorrow while helping the memory of Kevin live on.”
