The Kent Companies to Award $25,000 in College Scholarships

The Kent Companies is proud to announce that the company will present 25 Team Members with $1,000 college scholarships at our corporate office on Thursday, August 22nd. All 25 Team Members worked for the company throughout the summer and are continuing their education this fall. The Team Members worked in Kent Kwik Convenience Stores, Avis Lube Fast Oil Change Centers, Huddle House Restaurants, Baskin Robbins and the corporate office.

The Kent Companies have been making West Texans lives easy since 1957. Now led and owned by the second generation, this family-owned business still operates with the same attitude and spirit on which it was founded – hard work, dedication to our Guests and Team Members, and a never-ending drive to be the best.

We believe in investing in our Team Members future, which is why education is so important to our company. Along with the $1,000 college scholarship, these Team Members are also eligible to receive tuition reimbursement and another $1,000 scholarship if they continue to work part-time throughout the semester.

Team Members provide incredible service to our guests every day, but we know their commitment to excellence extends far beyond our stores. Many Team Members work part- or full-time while also pursuing their education. Through our Team Member scholarships, our goal is to help these young leaders achieve their education dreams and create their own extraordinary futures.

On Wednesday, June 12th, The Kent Companies presented the Helen Keller Foundation with a check for $80,000. The donation comes from a company-wide collection campaign where guests donated to the charity at one of the Kent Kwik Convenience Stores or Avis Lube Fast Oil Change Center locations. The Kent Companies then matched the guest donations dollar for dollar. All of the funds will go towards fighting to prevent preventable blindness. “I strongly believe in giving back to the communities that support our businesses every day.” said Bill Kent, owner and chairman.
