Reaping the rewards | From TC Energy scholarship recipient to TC Energy employee
As an avid triathlete, car enthusiast, and carpenter, Max is proof that individuals who pursue multiple talents, not simply academics, are the type of people TC Energy looks to employ. He believes everything from applying for the scholarship to getting a job with the company was his life moving in the right direction.
"While pursuing my undergraduate degree, I interned at a gas plant and loved the industry, but never got a chance get back into it. When I saw there was an open position with TC Energy, it sparked that interest again, and everything fell into place," says Max, who is now an advocate for the scholarship program and our industry.
"Since working for the company, I’ve realized how important natural gas is; how much we use it every single day, and my role is making sure we deliver it to those who need it. Seeing how everyone across the organization is working together to deliver on that helps puts everything into perspective for me."
In 2019, when Max received his scholarship, more than 1,000 scholarships – over C$2M in total – were awarded to students from 380 different communities across North America.
Whether TC Energy is providing grants, awarding scholarships, or sponsoring local events that bring community members together, the goal is to help build strong, vibrant communities across our footprint.
