The Cleaning Authority CARES Scholarship Awarded to Rilie BarnesJul 20, 2017
The Cleaning Authority and its franchise locations value the importance of education and encourage their employees to pursue higher education. The Cleaning Authority CARES scholarship honors employees of The Cleaning Authority as well as the spouses and children of employees who are working to further their education. In April, The Cleaning Authority CARES awarded ten scholarships in the amount of $1,000. The scholarship will help to off-set the costs of tuition, books, or fees at any accredited university, college, trade, or technical school.
Rilie Barnes, whose mother is a Quality Inspector in The Cleaning Authority of Gladstone, was awarded one of the scholarships to assist her as she attends the University of St. Mary. Rilie’s achievement was featured in the Gladstone Dispatch and the Leavenworth Times. “I am beyond grateful for the opportunities I have been given by The Cleaning Authority. Over this past summer, I actually got to work alongside my mother at The Cleaning Authority. This time really gave me a better appreciation for what they do and how hard my mom works,” Rilie told Leavenworth Times. “Receiving this scholarship has alleviated a lot of stress for my mom funding my college tuition.”
