Nov 01, 2017
Since its inception, the annual Autobell Car Wash Scholarship Program has awarded qualifying applicants from its employee ranks over $1.27 million in continuing education funds. For the 2017-18 academic year, Autobell assisted 139 employees in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Georgia with scholarships toward the college or university of their choice, with the year’s gifts totaling $168,500.

”When we launched the program in 2000, our intention was to assist and reward dedicated employees who were motivated to further their studies through higher education,” said Autobell CEO Chuck Howard. “We value learning and wanted to offer support to our employees who sought more. We view this program as an investment in our work force and our communities.”

The annual scholarship program is open to current Autobell employees of at least 12 months continuous employment who are graduating high school seniors or have received a high school diploma.
