scholarship-Alexa

2016 / 2017 - Alexa Moschella

I am currently enrolled as a first year life sciences student at the University of Toronto: Mississauga. I am working towards achieving a double major in biology and psychology in pursuit of becoming a doctor one day. I thoroughly enjoy my program, the professors, my peers, and the many research opportunities available to me. I am glad that my university also has several outreach initiatives to partake in. Throughout my high school career, I was thoroughly involved in community service. Some examples include representing a children’s charity in the Youth Philanthropy Initiative Competition winning them $5000, being a child life volunteer at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, preparing and personally delivering sandwiches to the homeless on the streets of Toronto, and participating in a mission trip with Habitat for Humanity. Though I have only been a university student for a short time, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to receive such an outstanding education in a positive environment. I owe this to the Toronto Transportation Club for helping to fund my education through this scholarship. For that, I thank the Toronto Transportation Club immensely and assure them that this scholarship will be put to good use. Thank you for this honour.

2016 / 2017 - Mathew Myles

Hello, my name is Matthew Myles and I am currently a First Year student studying Medical Sciences at the University of Western Ontario. I am very thrilled that the TTC board has chosen me as recipient for this year’s scholarship. I would like to thank all Board and TTC members for this gracious honour.

I attended Bishop Allen academy and applied myself in the AP program graduating with a 97 percent average and have received both the AP scholar with distinction, and AP national scholar (Canada) awards. Throughout my high school career, I developed my leadership through volunteer and community work and clubs centred around the environment and social justice. I have run initiatives including organizing dinners for 400 community members and bringing speakers from for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders and the Council of Canadians to help educate students on social justice issues.

Through my degree, I plan on pursuing a career in either research or medicine because I want to give back to society and have a positive impact on people’s lives. Thank you for giving me this incredible opportunity.


 

scholarship evelyn

2015 / 2016 - Evelyn Williams

Hello, my name is Evelyn Williams and I am currently a first year Nursing student at McMaster University. I would like to take the time to thank the TTC and all of its Members for giving me this amazing opportunity. This financial assistance will really help alleviate some of the costs that are associated with funding my post-secondary education.

Pursuing a career in nursing has always been a dream of mine. I’ve always wanted to have a career where I would have the opportunity to make an impact on someone’s life. Being able to care for someone when they are at their weakest – and at times their strongest – moment in life, is a privilege and an honour. I have always had great respect towards health care professionals because of the commitment and passion they demonstrate in their roles.

Thank you again to the board and the members of the Toronto Transportation Club for supporting this scholarship and for rewarding me this honour.


 scholarship jacob  2015 / 2016 - Jacob Knight

My name is Jacob Knight, and I am currently enrolled in the Biology program at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. I would like to start off by expressing my deepest gratitude in receiving The Toronto Transportation Scholarship. I had heard about the opportunity from my mother, Jamie Knight- who holds the esteemed position of Customer Service and Brokerage Manager within the Wheels MSM corporation- and I decided to give it a shot and apply. After all, Monopoly money can only you get so far nowadays. I have no doubt that the Toronto Transportation Club saw no shortage of bright and talented individuals, and that the committee had to make a number of difficult decisions. This fact only consolidates how fortunate I feel to be speaking with you all today. As such, from the bottom of my heart I extend my deepest thanks to the Toronto Transportation Board and its members. This gift not only supports me financially, but also hits a fundamental life lesson home: your returns are reflective of your investment. With your support, I will continue along my path to becoming a medical professional, expanding my horizons both in and out of the classroom. And keeping things light the whole way down.

2014 / 2015 - Shane Reid

Hello, my name is Shane Reid, recipient of the 2014 Toronto Transportation Club Scholarship.

I would like to take this time to thank the Board and all of the Members who made this opportunity possible. This September I began my studies at Trent University in Peterborough Ontario, studying Forensic Science, which will lead me to my chosen career working with the Coroner’s Office. After graduation I intend to continue my education through either Medical School, Law school, or go on to get my Masters in Forensic Science.

Thank you again to the Board and the Members of the Toronto Transportation Club for this amazing opportunity, the financial assistance will certainly help me to achieve my long term career goals.


scholarship kelsie

2014 / 2015 - Kelsie Wilkinson

Hi, I’m Kelsie Wilkinson and I am honoured to be a recipient of this year’s Toronto Transportation Club Scholarship. I am extremely grateful to the TTC and its members for presenting me with this award, which will greatly reduce my financial worries that so often accompany post-secondary education.

I am currently a student in my first year in the Desautels faculty of management at McGill University. I am working towards a bachelor of commerce with joint honours in economics and finance. After my Undergraduate studies, I plan to pursue a Master’s degree in Business Administration. I love the program I’m in because I have the opportunity to be exposed to so many different aspects of the business world—from marketing to financial accounting—so I can develop a greater understanding of everything that contributes to a successful company. Since my degree is so broad, I really don’t know exactly where it’s going to take me, which is kind of exciting! The resources I have access to through my program will allow me to pursue my goals in any capacity that I’d like... who knows, I may even end up in the transportation sector!

Thank you again to the board and the members of the Toronto Transportation Club, for this honour.

2013 / 2014 - Jake Wilkinson

I am thrilled to have been named a recipient of this year’s TTC scholarship, and am incredibly grateful to the organization for giving me this opportunity. As we all know, post-secondary education is very expensive.  This financial assistance makes a big difference for me by alleviating some of the stress for me at school which is very beneficial to my studies.

Currently, I am enrolled in the Specialization in Theatre Performance program at Concordia University in Montreal. The entire theatre department here recognizes the importance of interdisciplinary work in the arts, and does its best to integrate students into each aspect of theatrical creation, as well as make a number of connections in the business. I graduated from the ‘Arts Huron’ program at Huron Heights Secondary School with a passion for theatre. I’ve acted in dozens of plays, directed a number of productions, and I’ve written two shows that have gone on to be produced. My time and effort throughout high school in the arts helped me to realize the true value of performance theatre and how it can literally change lives and the way people see the world.

After only a month in this program, the opportunities I see for growth through theatre have expanded immensely. After I receive my Bachelor of Fine Arts, I hope to go on to pursue a Master’s in Acting and to promote youth outreach in theatre. Performance is something that, if given the right spaces to work, can change lives. I’ve witnessed firsthand how empowering a vehicle theatre can be.  It gives young people a voice and the confidence to use that voice. I’d love to be able to give kids who are thinking of pursuing theatre a state-of-the-art space where acting, writing and production is taught professionally, and creative freedom is encouraged. Alongside that, I hope to keep writing plays and exploring new worlds through performance and production.

Thank you again to the TTC Board for this incredible honour, and for opening up many more opportunities for me as I pursue my dream, it truly means a lot!


melissa_sharvit

2013 / 2014 - Melissa Sharvit

Since before I can even remember, when anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer was always "a teacher". From a extremely young age I would go to Staples and buy all the teacher school supplies and sit in my room playing school with my dolls, my brother, or younger family friends. At the age of 8 I even taught my family friend how to read her first books. Being a teacher is a great profession, so of course no one ever had a problem with that, however no one believed that 18 years later, my ambitions for being a teacher would still be true. I am currently in my first year at York University majoring in Children's Studies as well as Concurrent Education. By the end of this 5 year program I will be qualified to teach primary-junior (kindergarten- grade 6).

Throughout high school at Westmount Collegiate Institute, I gained excessive volunteer as well as work experience with children of all ages. It is through this experience that not only did I gain the clarification that I needed to ensure I wanted to become a teacher, but it is also what led me to ultimately chose to teach younger children. Being a teacher for me is way more than the benefits and the long summers. Especially when teaching the young ones, it's about helping the children grow into the people they will be in the future, helping to shape their minds, and to give them the foundations they will need to survive this crazy world. Kids are our future, and for me, there is no greater honour than being a part of that.

In addition to thanking the Toronto Transportation Club and everyone involved in making the decision for choosing me to be this years scholarship winner, I would like to thank my dad, Stan Sharvit. My dad has been a part of the transportation industry for my entire life. Obviously, with my ambitions of being a teacher and not following his footsteps into transportation, he did not teach me to love what he does. What he did teach me however, is what when you love what you're doing you'll always be happy. It doesn't matter how much money you make or the extremely stressful days you'll encounter, it's the passion that counts. He's showed me what's important in life and for what, I will be forever grateful.

Once again, thank you to the Toronto Transportation Club for providing me with this honour.

2012 / 2013 - Tess Collins

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to apply and earn this scholarship, as I am sure it will be beneficial to my university education. I would like to thank the TTC Board and the membership for sponsoring the scholarship program it really does make a big difference in helping to cover the costs of a secondary education.

Throughout my High School career at Bishop Allen Academy I had the opportunity to be in the Advanced Placement program. This program exposed me to first year university material and has prepared me for the transition to post-secondary education. I graduated from high school with a 92 average which earned me advanced early entry to the Ivey School of Business. As a first year student at the University of Western Ontario, I hope to continue the work ethic I developed in high school and graduate from the Honours Business Administration program. Although university has proven to be much more strenuous than high school, I stay committed to my academics as I work towards my goal of earning my chartered accountant accreditations and work internationally. As a bilingual student I hope to gain more cultural experience and develop my language skills through an international exchange. This experience will not only expose me to other cultures but also enable me to gain international experience, develop relationships with international employers, and be more competent in the international business field.

At Western I continue to stay involved in extra-curricular activities. I have joined the French club and Unicef club where I hope to take on executive positions to further develop my leadership skills. While in high school I enjoyed participating in various sports teams including the Ski and Snowboard team as well as the Dragon Boating team. At Western I have joined the intramural flag football team. I believe being actively involved in sports teams has helped me develop the skills necessary to work as a team.

Again thank you very much for the scholarship it really is a great honour and huge help in attaining my goals!

2011 / 2012 - Carly Fowler

I am in my first year of Food and Nutritional Sciences at The University of Western Ontario and am working towards becoming a Registered Dietitian. In order to become an RD, I must graduate from a four-year program as well as apply for and complete a one-year internship.

I have always been a healthy eater and live a pretty active lifestyle. My interest to become a Registered Dietitian began in grade 10 when I took a food and nutrition elective course. After taking this course I was certain that I would apply for Food and Nutrition in university. I was offered early acceptance into the Foods and Nutrition program at UWO and I am loving it!! I am learning many new things regarding healthy eating habits, food insecurity among developing countries and much more.

We all know that Western is known to be the party school; however I try to balance out schoolwork with having fun during my university experience. I have also joined the UWO Dance Force Team, which keeps me active and involved in school activities. As a grad of the regional arts program at Mayfield Secondary School in the dance program and having danced competitively with a local studio for 8 years, being able to continue dancing at a recreational level while at university is great.

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to apply for and attain this scholarship and I assure you that it will help me tremendously throughout my university experience. Thank you to Mr. Gary Crowther, President of the Toronto Transportation Club, as well as the TTC board of directors and all of its members for your continuous support of the annual TTC scholarship award. The financial support will help me as well as past and future scholarship recipients, to achieving academic goals.

Thank you to everyone for making a difference in my academic experience and for helping me achieve my dream of becoming an RD. Thank you!!

2004 / 2005 - Herminter Paul Gil Memorial Scholarship - Kayleigh Ward

I would like to sincerely thank the Toronto Transportation Club for extending the Herminter Paul Gil Memorial Scholarship in contribution to my education. Also, I would like to thank Herminter’s father and family for establishing this scholarship in his memory. With your help and generosity, I have enjoyed 4 successful years of university and hope to continue my education at Teacher’s College soon.

I started my university student career in 2004 at the University of Western Ontario, pursuing a degree in business. A lot has changed since then, as I reassessed my goals for the future and pursued my passion in history in the hopes of becoming a Teacher some day. I have also changed schools and I now attend McMaster University, studying at home with just a semester left to go.

I greatly appreciate your confidence in me as well as your willingness to contribute to my education. My sincere thanks for all that you have done to help me reach my goals.

Again, thank you for investing in my future.

Sincerely,

Kayleigh Ward
