<p><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The Truckload Carriers

Association’s (TCA) Scholarship Fund will be providing financial assistance

to 50 undergraduate college students for the 2017-18 academic year. Each

student will receive a scholarship ranging from $2,725 to $6,250, from a

total pool of approximately $150,000. </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">The six largest scholarships are named after dedicated

members, affiliates, and past TCA chairmen. The largest scholarship—named

after the National Association of Independent Truckers (NAIT) in the amount

of $6,250—will be awarded to Dylan Tungate of Louisville, Kentucky. Tungate

has earned a TCA Scholarship in each of the past four years, but this will be

his first time receiving the NAIT Scholarship. </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">A senior at Campbellsville University studying Business Administration,

Tungate has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout his collegiate career. He

attributes his successes to the work ethic that his father instilled in him.

“As a little kid, I remember my dad getting up early in the morning to go to

his job at Hendrickson,” Tungate recalls. “It has taught me how to be an

exceptional student and employee, which includes always showing up on time,

completing every task you start, and working together as a team. I’ve

followed the example he set for me as I grew up, and it has paid off.”</span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">The second-largest award, $4,500, named after John

Kaburick, TCA chairman from 2010-2011, will be awarded to Bailey Snow of

Lincoln, Nebraska. Snow is a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

who, like Tungate, is studying Business Administration. Also like Tungate,

she credits her father with providing a model of how hard work can lead to

success. “My dad thoroughly enjoys going to work, which is both promising and

inspiring for me. His work ethic and joy for work give me hope that I will

one day find a career that I can also enjoy.” </span></p>
