TORONTO, Ont. – For the third year in a row, TransCore Link Logistics has awarded $5,000 to two of Canada’s most academically-minded high school students in the transportation industry, as part of its LinkScholar Program.
This year’s recipients were Jonathon Parlee of Norton, New Brunswick, and Cassandra Fenlon of Thunder Bay, Ontario. TransCore Link Logistics’ scholarship winners were the finalists selected by an independent adjudicator and demonstrated the strongest combination of academic excellence, well-roundedness, leadership and benevolence.
“We are proud of these two recipients who are passionately making a civic impact in their communities while balancing excellence in academics,” said Claudia Milicevic, senior director and general manager of TransCore Link Logistics. “The future is bright for these young leaders.”
Jonathon, son of Reg Parlee at Eagle Transportation Systems (a division of R&G Transport Ltd.), is an aspiring engineer enrolled at the University of New Brunswick. Cassandra, daughter of Patrick Fenlon at Freight Managers Inc., is an aspiring dietician enrolled at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. Both are looking forward to starting the next chapter of their academic journey this fall.
