Kinedyne Corp. has concluded its second annual Kinedyne Cares College Scholarship Program with $2,500 awards to two students – one from Ohio and one from Virginia. The scholarships were presented through a competition facilitated by the Ohio and Virginia state trucking associations.
The recipients for the second year of the program were selected based on 500-word essays addressing the topic “How the trucking industry has positively impacted my life.” The competition was open to all members of the two respective trucking associations, as well as to members of their immediate families. Payments will be made directly to the winning students’ bursar accounts for tuition costs.
“We received a lot of positive feedback after the first year of our scholarship program,” says David Callahan, corporate marketing manager for New Jersey-based Kinedyne, a manufacturer of cargo control products for the transportation industry. “We understand that funding a college education will continue to be challenging for some time until the economy fully recovers. We’re happy to continue this program, which provides financial support to deserving individuals and families within our own industry.”
The winners of the Kinedyne Cares College Scholarship Program for the 2010 academic year were North Royalton, Ohio resident Alex Mummert, who is attending the Cleveland Institute of Art; and Winchester, Va. resident Tyler Lackey, who is attending Roanoke College.
