College student and working service writer/advisor Jeremy Sullivan is the latest recipient of a $2,500 scholarship from the RV Learning Center Scholarship Program, which is endowed through The Kindlund Family Foundation.
According to a press release, Sullivan recently completed an associate’s degree in pre-business and is studying to receive an accounting degree at the University of Cincinnati. He is employed as a service writer/advisor at Colerain Trailer Center in Cincinnati.
“We are extremely pleased to provide the RV Learning Center scholarship to a student who is actively employed at an RV dealership,” said Newt Kindlund. “Jeremy is a great example of how higher education can benefit dealerships and employees.”
Sullivan says his eight years at Colerain have been rewarding and that he truly enjoys the RV business. “I have learned a great deal about how an outstanding business should operate as well as how to appreciate the employees that help a business become outstanding,” he said.
The RV Learning Center Scholarship Program recognizes deserving rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Applicants are judged on academic achievement, extracurricular activities and honors, RV industry involvement, financial need and a 500-word essay. The program has awarded more than $54,000 to 22 students since its inception in 2000.
The Kindlund family, which endowed the scholarship program with $270,000, remains active in the RV industry after selling its corporation, Holiday RV Superstores, in 1999. Newt Kindlund serves on the RV Learning Center board.
