The 2014 TST Overland Express International Transportation & Customs Scholarship was recently presented to a couple of hard-working and dedicated Seneca College students who are entering their second year in the college’s International Transportation & Customs program.
Sze Ming Alex Tang and Sharanpreet Randhawa have each been awarded a scholarship to help fund their ongoing studies.
Rob O’Reilly, president of TST Overland Express, is pleased to provide financial assistance to “students who are focused on studies that have the potential to benefit the trucking industry.” This is the sixth consecutive year that two top students entering their second year have received TST Overland Express scholarships. “There are not many opportunities for students who wish to pursue formal education in transportation and logistics, so we view this as a great opportunity to help deserving students who have chosen this important field of study,” said O’Reilly.
Ms. Tang is currently taking CITT (Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation) courses, and plans to become certified as a logistics professional in the next two years. She also plans to earn certificates in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
“I hope I can work in a company where I can provide all-in-one services, like customs brokerage, dispatch coordination and supply chain management,” said Ms. Tang in a statement to the OTA Education Foundation, which administers the scholarship.
Mr. Randhawa hopes to be employed as a logistics manager in a reputable company, and has ambitions to be a CEO in 10 to 15 years. he would also like to earn a post graduate degree in Philosophy, and eventually would like to establish an Education institute to provide education to Canadians cost-free.
The TST Overland Express International Transportation & Customs Scholarship is financed by income generated on a fund endowed by TST Overland Express, and is administered by the OTA Education Foundation.
