Thanks to her “incredible commitment to her community,” Penticton resident and future nurse Kayla Sande has been awarded a $2,500 scholarship.
Awarded through the LinkScholar program offered by TransCore Link Logistics, Sande will be putting this money towards her nursing degree that she is currently pursuing at the Thompson Rivers University. The program rewards exceptional Canadain youth who have relatives in the trucking industry.
According to a release from the program, Sande spent time volunteering with the Penticton Regional Hospital, which confirmed her preformed intentions of becoming a nurse. She also volunteers with a breakfast club, various school fundraisers and projects in the community.
“I am always keen to volunteer and take on leadership roles in my school and in the community,” said Sande in the release. “I do this because I want to give back.”
The release states that Sande has a family member who works with Berry & Smith Trucking Ltd. Since its creation six years ago, the LinkScholar program has provided $30,000 in tuition assistance to Canadian students across the country.
“Kayla’s commitment to her community is so inspiring,” said TransCore Link Logistics general manager Claudia Milicevic in the release. “We’re thrilled to award this scholarship to such a passionate young woman.”
