We are both fortunate to have an opportunity to work for Presidio Homes and gain such valuable experience in the housing industry
Loganville, GA (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
Presidio Homes LLC, a locally owned and operated homebuilding company, has awarded local high school seniors Brooke Boyd and Jena Smith a $10,000 scholarship, which they will split. The winners were announced at the Loganville High School Senior Awards Ceremony on May 7th. Both recipients of the award will receive $1250 a year for the next four years to aid in college costs.
The Presidio Homes Scholarship competition was open to Loganville High School seniors. To be eligible, students were required to maintain a 3.0 grade average throughout high school, and must retain a 3.0 or greater average throughout college as well gain real-world experiences by working at Presidio Homes and participating in company departments such as sales and marketing, contracts, purchasing, accounting. “The competition was rigorous, and both girls exceeded our expectations,” said Presidio Homes founder and president, Jeremy York. According to York. “The level of interest and dedication the girls demonstrated is inspiring.”
York says this scholarship is just the beginning for Presidio Homes, who plans to continue the scholarship opportunity annually. “The building industry is an amazing industry – there are so many opportunities for so many students. We felt this scholarship would be a great way to introduce students to this industry, and share the passion and enthusiasm Presidio Homes has for building with this up and coming generation,” says York.
Brooke will be continuing her education at Valdosta State University with plans to major in interior design. Jena will be continuing on to Georgia Tech with a focus on architecture. “We are both fortunate to have an opportunity to work for Presidio Homes and gain such valuable experience in the housing industry,” say Brooke and Jena, “We are really grateful to Presidio Homes for their generosity.”
