The Don Anderson Haulage Business and Technology scholarships were awarded to two college-bound students during Stouffville District Secondary School’s Commencement ceremony.
Madison Langlois was presented with the Don Anderson Haulage Business scholarship, which will help with tuition fees for her post-secondary studies in marketing-business at Durham College. Thas Ganeshathasan was also presented with the Don Anderson Haulage Technology scholarship to assist with his goal to become an electrical engineering technician at Mohawk College.
Michael Anderson, president of heavy hauler and OTA member, Don Anderson Haulage in Gormley, Ont., says he values this annual opportunity to provide post-secondary financial assistance to students graduating from the local high school.
“Being from a very ‘hands-on’ type of business, we think that it’s important to encourage students to pursue practical learning through education and training at the college level,” says Anderson.
The Don Anderson Haulage Business and Technology Scholarships are awarded annually to two graduating Stouffville District Secondary School students with high overall averages who are attending college to study business or technology. The scholarships are funded by an endowment established by Don Anderson Haulage Limited., and are administered by the OTA Education Foundation.
