The automotive trades association is pleased to announce that Sophie pace is this year’s A.T.A. & Retail gasoline dealers association scholarship award winner.
The annual scholarship is for $2000.00 and is awarded to any son or daughter of a member. Sophie is the daughter of retailer Wayne Pace, owner of Tantallon Esso & Sackville Shell.
Sophie is 20 years old and studying nursing at Dalhousie University.
“ I did not know I wanted to be a nurse until I was entering my final year of high school. My two older sisters are nurses and my grandmother was a nurse as well. They empowered me and guided me to this profession.
I have always considered myself as a caring, supportive and empathetic individual, and as I go through nursing school I see these qualities continue to grow. My devotion to the field of nursing continues to grow as I challenge myself and pursue new learning with experience. I am hoping to start off my career in May 2020 as an acute care nurse because I believe the fast pace and continuous learning environment will allow me to continue to grow into the nurse I aspire to be. “ – Sophie Pace
Congratulations Sophie and all the best in your future endeavours.
