With our constant initiative to stay involved with the local community, we here at Cheetah Clean are happy to announce that we’re officially partnered with Western Kentucky University’s Learn and Earn program!
The Learn and Earn Program is a fantastic tool for students to utilize, and we’re looking forward to working with them over the upcoming semesters. The program, which allows students to work part time and earn tuition scholarships, provides a solid foundation for any student looking to ease the financial burdens that come along with higher education, not to mention, earning a nice paycheck in the process of doing so.
The Bowling Green Daily News recently released an article detailing the successful expansion the program is currently experiencing. The following is a excerpt from that piece, which will give you a better idea of what this is all about:
Whenever Leslie Witty tells people about Western Kentucky University’s Learn and Earn program, which allows students to work part time and earn tuition scholarships, the most common reaction she gets is, “I wish that had been around when I was in school.”
Now, after starting in January 2016 with one business partner, the program has added nine business partnerships with two pending since spring, bringing the total to 19 partnerships. The program has also added a 15-member advisory board to continue refining the program.
As of this fall, slightly more than 350 students are participating in the program, which offers up to 50 percent tuition scholarships provided students work with an employer for a semester.
The numbers speak for themselves, a successful, growing environment that we only expect to continue. Combining this with other recent moves on campus, it speaks to our mission, which is to better society by helping groom students for the real world. If you or someone you know is interested in the Learn and Earn Program in association with Cheetah Clean Auto Wash, please feel free to contact us!
