The Toledo Trucking Association directly impacted my life last April in a way I never could have imagined. In fact, every time I think about being selected as a TTA Scholarship recipient, I feel so honored and blessed. It is still hard for me to believe at times because this award truly made a difference in my life. It has opened opportunities for me, such as the internship I am doing. Additionally, it allowed me to triple major in Supply Chain Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing. The TTA Scholarship was a true Godsend as my decision to triple major extended my graduation date to December 2015, and my scholarship from The University of Toledo would not cover additional semesters.
Currently, I am a senior at UT. I am a student in the Honors College and have worked really hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout my college career. After I graduate, I am determined to use my triple major to help lead a company to success by helping it form the necessary synergistic relationships. My goal is to help increase cross-functional collaboration to eliminate departmental as well as cross-channel conflicts. I also hope to become a leader for society by always exemplifying ethics in both personal and professional settings.
With all this being said, I would like to truly thank the Toledo Trucking Association and the scholarship committee again for investing in my future. This award is a true honor and a true blessing that I will always be genuinely grateful for. The TTA is such a positive association, and I believe all of their efforts to create a positive image for the trucking industry are great. Also, their commitment to the scholarship fund to help students finance their education while acknowledging and rewarding their hard work is phenomenal. Thanks again TTA for all that you do!
