Tim Horton's owner, Louise Harshman (R) and Supervisor, Spencer MacLeod (L) present scholarship to student Caroline Scott (C)

Caroline Scott is off to university with a little more money than she anticipated after winning a $1,000 Tim Horton's scholarship.

The scholarship program is designed to recognize store employees, or their children and grandchildren, who volunteer in their communities and have plans to pursue post-secondary education.  Over the six years since its inception, over 1,000 students have been helped across Canada and the U.S.

"We are proud of Caroline's commitment to the community and her desire to pursue post-secondary education," said Louise Harshman, owner of Tim Horton's in Port Elgin and Southampton.  "We are happy that Tim Horton's can help Caroline fulfill her future goals and wish her much success."

Scott was one of 220 recipients for 2010 who qualified for a scholarship from the $220,000 given out through the program.

Each scholarship recipient was required to write a letter detailing his/her commitment to the community and how each felt they were making a difference.  The letters were then judged on their merit by a third party who did not know any of the potential recipients.

Scott is off to Queen's University where she will be majoring in psychology.
