Tim Hortons in Stettler has awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Nicole York, a first-year student at the University of Calgary.
For the past three years, York worked at the Stettler Tim Hortons. She also was a community contributor, said store owner René Bernard.
“We are delighted to present Nicole York with the 2013 Team Tim Hortons scholarship,” Bernard said.
“We are proud of her commitment to this community and the desire to pursue post-secondary education. We are happy that Tim Hortons can help Nicole fulfil her future goals, and we wish her much success.”
Team Tim Hortons recognizes restaurant owners and employees, and members of their families, who give back to their community through volunteer work and plan to study at the post-secondary level.
This year, $220,000 is distributed among 220 students, the company said in a news release.
