The staff at Thumb Cellular is again “Dressing Up” their efforts to help area high school seniors. For the eighth straight year, Thumb Cellular is awarding three $500 scholarships to graduating seniors to use in their quest for higher education.
This program, known as “Scholarship Day” started in 2002, with employees of Thumb Cellular all dressing alike one day a month, in exchange for the company donating this money for the scholarships.
“In the past we have had many outstanding applicants and it’s an excellent opportunity for Thumb Cellular staff to see the quality of students going on to higher education from our area,” General Manager, Paul Picklo stated.
Last year’s recipients were: Emily Martin, Cass City High School; Tyler Bradley, Peck High School; and Hilary Edwards, Bad Axe High School.Each student was presented with a $500 scholarship at his/her school’s year-end awards ceremony. The winning essays that have been submitted in the past eight years can be viewed at Thumb Cellular locations in Bad Axe, Caro, Pigeon, or Sandusky.
Thumb Cellular plans to once again award three area seniors with $500 scholarships in the 2010-2011 school year. Details on how to apply for the scholarship will be available soon.
Thumb Cellular wishes all students well in their continuing education.
