TC Scholarship Recipient — Cayley — Wainwright, Alta.


With my horses they are kind of like my whole
world. That’s what I do outside of work. We do barrel racing, pole bending, the stake
race, keyhole, and just going on trail rides and being with them, I really enjoy it. Growing up in Wainwright, I kinda knew everyone. You see people walking down the street, in
the grocery store you know. Pretty much know everyone. It’s a nice kind of homey feel. I started working for my dad before I started
senior high. Working in the back to doing some accounting
and selling parts. I kind of moulded it all together to figure
out that I wanted to be, a parts technician. I need to know how parts go together, what
works with what. Inventory control, merchandising, there is
shipping, receiving, safety, and then if we’re shorthanded I’ll be in the back prepping
a box liner or packing some bearings. When I finish my program, I actually want
to take the Red Seal trades exam. If you’re a Red Seal technician you’re
kind of the best of the best. I think the more women try and get into the
trades, I think the more beneficial. It’ll break that kind of barrier or the
mould that just guys can be in the trade. The scholarship means just furthering my education. You know, one less thing I have to worry about. It’s going to help me achieve my goals. For any students thinking about applying for
any scholarship, I would say go for it. If you’re driven and you’re passionate
about what you want to do, just stay focused on yourself, what you want to achieve in your
career and you’ll be successful.
