Vancouver Community College:
Ed Coates Memorial Foundation Scholarship:
This scholarship is offered to the Transportation Trades students:
The Ed Coates Memorial Foundation Scholarship created this scholarship in the memory Ed Coates who was a true pioneer in the automotive industry. As Co-founder, President, and CEO of Lordco Auto Parts, a Maple Ridge based company established in 1974, Ed took his original small automotive parts store and through perseverance, courage and an unfailing belief in his vision over the course of 40 years, molded it into the largest privately held automotive parts distributor in Canada. It is our hope that the recipient will be inspired by Ed’s passion and drive as an industry icon. This scholarship is awarded to a student who shows high academic achievement, strong leadership skills, and positive attitude.
$500 (fall & spring)
