TORONTO, Ont. – TransCore Link Logistics announced the recipients of its second annual LinkScholar program that awards two students $2,500 each for their academic excellence, well-roundedness and leadership.
The two winners of the 2015 award are Shelby Tobin from Conception Bay South, Nfld. and Paige Brown from Whitby, Ont.
Tobin is the step-daughter of Darren Brophy at Jardine Transport. She is pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland and plans to major in biology.
Brown is enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University and has plans to be psychologist. She is the daughter of Russ and Paula Brown at Stryder Logistics.
Both Tobin and Brown were two of the 25 who applied to the program this year which represented a 56% increase over last year’s numbers.
“Being the second year for our program, I’m thrilled to see the positive increase in applicants this year,” says Claudia Milicevic, senior director and general manager of TransCore Link Logistics. “We had an impressive group of bright young leaders who applied; however, these two young ladies stood out coupled with particularly strong supportive reference letters from their teachers.”
