Notice of Bursary in Memory of Tom Simpson

Tom Simpson joined the ARA just a few years ago when he learned of the important work the ARA was doing to improve trades training at B.C. colleges. He was an active member of the Automotive Sector Advisory Committee (ASAG) under the Industry Training Authority (ITA) and contributed greatly to discussions aimed at ensuring the government recognizes the need for greater support for automotive trades and careers. Tom was a leader and a driver of improvement in his own community and speakers at his memorial service on October 23, in Prince George made it clear just how much Tom will be missed by family, friends, and peers. To honour his legacy, a group of his friends and colleagues are working to establish the Tom Simpson Memorial Automotive Endowment Bursary at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George.
