Cooper awards Roy V. Armes and Centennial Scholarships
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company reports that six recent high school graduates have been selected to receive scholarships to pursue higher education via its Roy V Armes and Centennial scholarship programme.
The Roy V. Armes Scholarship, a renewable scholarship which provides up to $5,000 over the next four years, was awarded to one student (Mitchel Schroeder). Cooper Centennial Scholarships, in the amount of $1,000 each, were awarded to five further students.
The Roy V. Armes Scholarship was established in 2016 to honour former cooper chairman, chief executive officer and president, Roy Armes, upon his retirement. Armes served Cooper for nearly a decade, and this fund was created in recognition of his many contributions and achievements. The
scholarship is focused on “high-achieving students who will attend a four-year institution of higher learning to pursue careers in business or engineering” and goes to the child of a Cooper employee in the United States.
The Cooper Centennial Scholarship is in its sixth year and was originated to commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary in 2014. The scholarship is available to the children of Cooper employees in the US who are “outstanding high school seniors and who will pursue degrees at a college, university or technical school”.
