MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Trailcon Leasing will be sponsoring a new annual scholarship of up to $1,000 for a deserving student.


The scholarship, presented in conjunction with the Ontario Trucking Association Education Foundation, will be awarded to one student annually who is enrolled in the Truck-Trailer Service Technician program at Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning at its Guelph, Ont. campus.


The scholarship recipient will be selected by Conestoga College based on a combination of academic performance and financial need.


“This scholarship is a reflection of exactly what we were trying to accomplish at Trailcon,” says Al Boughton, president of Trailcon Leasing in Mississauga. “We wanted our scholarship to go to a deserving student each year who takes his or her education seriously. The scholarship eligibility criteria require that the student demonstrate a commitment to his or her education. At the same time, we want to make sure that, in this environment of escalating education fees, the student is also in need of some financial assistance”


The Trailcon Leasing Trailer Service Technician Scholarship will be awarded annually and is funded by an endowed fund administered by the OTA Education Foundation, Inc. Conestoga College will use established criteria to assess applicants’ financial needs.
