Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series recipient profile: Holly Padfield

Each week in Just the Fax, we will profile one of the recipients of our 2020 Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series. This week’s recipient is Holly Padfield.

Holly received scholarships from sponsors Uponor and Bradford White. She is a student at Medicine Hat College in her second year of the Business Administration program.

“I have grown up in the mechanical trades with my grandfather starting his own mechanical business and, in later years, passed it on to my father and one day, I may be the third generation. Growing up, I loved going with my father on service calls and learning what it takes to make a business successful. Over the past few years, I have worked as a labourer learning the mechanical trades as my summer job both in the field and have also had the chance to experience the business side working in the office.”

Holly’s father is employed by Pad-Car Mechanical.
