Kinedyne Corp. has concluded its third annual Kinedyne Cares College Scholarship Program with $2,500 awards to two students – one from New Jersey and one from Alabama. The scholarships were presented following a competition conducted in association with the New Jersey Motor Truck Association and the Alabama Trucking Association. The winners were Moorestown, N.J. resident Stephen Boyle, who attends Villanova University; and Roanoke, Ala. resident Madison Duffy, who attends Jacksonville State University.
The recipients of this year’s awards were selected based on their 500-word essays addressing the topic “How the trucking industry has positively impacted my life.” The competition was open to all members of the 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 are pleased that this program has been so well received by members of the various U.S. state trucking associations,” says David Callahan, corporate marketing manager for New Jersey-based Kinedyne, a manufacturer of cargo control products for the transportation industry. “Providing assistance to deserving individuals and families within the trucking industry was our objective when we established this scholarship program in 2009, and the resounding response from so many applicants during the last three years indicates it’s a big success.”
