ServNet has announced the 2019 recipients of the group's scholarship program during its Spring Owners' Meeting, held in April. Now in its fourth year, the scholarship program was established in 2016 as an ongoing initiative to help ServNet auction employees and their families pursue the dream of higher education. The ServNet Scholarship program assists full-time ServNet auction employees, their children, stepchildren and grandchildren who plan to pursue education in college or vocational school programs.
"As the leaders of of family-owned businesses ourselves, we ServNet owners take a deep personal interest in our employees," explained Ryan Clark, owner of Greater Rockford Auto Auction and a member of ServNet's Board of Directors, overseeing the Scholarship Program. "ServNet's scholarship program is a great way for us to encourage the members of our auction families and to help lay the groundwork for the next generation that follows."
Ryan reports that the group awarded a total of $18,000 in scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year. The awards will be given in increments of six awards of $2,500 to students attending a four-year college or university, and two awards of $1,500 for students attending a two-year college.
