TORONTO, Ont.— Scholarships were given out at the 5th annual Trades & Apprenticeship Awards presentation in Waterloo last week.
Vania Agostinho, was awarded the Trailcon Leasing Trailer Service Technician Scholarship for excelling in the truck trailer module. Agostinho said that she has always had a flare for the automotive sector despite others thinking that it is “too difficult to learn and work in a male-dominated industry.”
Al Boughton of Trailcon Leasing commented: “We see this as a great opportunity to give back, and to help a deserving individual get the necessary training that will open doors to a career in a skilled trade.”
In addition, Glasvan Great Dane gave out two scholarships to worthy students. The Great Dane Truck Trailer Service Technician scholarship was awarded to Neil Sullivan and Jason Reinhart as they were the top academic achievers in Conestoga’s College’s motive power fundamentals program.
“Once again, we are thrilled to see our scholarships awarded to such deserving and dedicated students,” said Paul Cobham. “This is a great opportunity to reach out to students who have set their sights on employment in the truck and truck-trailer service industry, and provide them with some financial assistance to help fund their studies”.
