ATA RGDA Scholarship Award Winner

January 4, 2020

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.
