Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators has announced the five winners of its third annual internal scholarship program. The scholarship program was open to Arrow team members and their dependents who were either graduating high school seniors or enrolled in a college program. The applicants were asked to write a short essay on what has surprised them the most about the pest control industry.
The following five students are the winners of the scholarship program and will each receive a $1,000 scholarship:
- Christopher Seda has been with Arrow for 15 years as a mosquito and termite service professional. Seda will graduate in March 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in business management and then aspires to use his degree to grow his career at Arrow.
- Haley Wellborn, daughter of Arrow team member Melanie Bruner, will be attending Middle Georgia State University in the fall. Wellborn currently works at Chick-Fil-A and is eager to pursue a degree in early childhood education.
- Matthew Powell is the son of Whitney Powell, senior service center manager of Arrow’s Cumming, Ga., service center. He will be attending the University of North Georgia as a cadet in the Army ROTC Boars Head Brigade. He plans to obtain a bachelor’s degree in biology and aspires to become a physical therapist in the U.S Army.
- Jade Dorminey, daughter of Arrow team member Stori Page, is entering her sophomore year of college at Johnson University, where she is working to obtain her bachelor’s of science degree in counseling. With the scholarship, she hopes to eventually work with teens and young adults diagnosed with mental disorders; her main focus is to center her work on active and retired military, along with public safety personnel.
- Austin Jaggers, son of Arrow team member Nora Gregory, is a student at Eastern Kentucky University, where he has been awarded the university’s President’s Award and has made the Dean’s List twice.
Arrow Exterminators created the scholarship programs for Arrow team members and their family to encourage personal and professional growth. The money awarded is specifically designed to assist students with their higher education expenses and facilitate their path to pursuing a career.
