The Truckload Carriers Association announced that it will provide college scholarships to 19 students for the 2010-11 school year. Each scholarship recipient will be a college student attending an accredited four-year college or university, and is either the child, grandchild or spouse of an employee or an employee of a TCA member company, or the child, grandchild or spouse of an independent contractor or an independent contractor affiliated with a TCA member. In addition, each scholarship recipient has shown financial need, maintained full-time student status and has demonstrated that he or she is an individual of high character and integrity.
“It is wonderful to be a part of this great program that the TCA maintains for its members,” says Tom McLeod, chairman of TCA’s Scholarship Fund and president of McLeod Software Corporation of Birmingham, Ala. “TCA’s scholarships will go a long way toward helping some of trucking’s next generation achieve their dreams. By helping individuals and families who have dedicated their careers to the trucking industry, we know that many will be able to make an even stronger contribution in return.”
