On Thursday, Aug. 19th, The Kent Companies hosted its second Team Member Scholarship day where Owner and CEO, Bill Kent, gave out $14,000 in college scholarships to Team Members across all entities of the company. Recipients of the scholarships were Team Members who are currently students and newly hired to Baskin Robbins, Huddle House, Rustic Cafe, Kent Car Wash and Kent Kwik Convenience Stores. To receive the scholarship, the students had to work full-time from June to August.

Team Members and their families gathered at the corporate office of The Kent Companies where they were welcomed with balloon towers, finger food and a Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cake. Before the handing out of the checks, Bill Kent, Owner, and Todd Watkins, President, spoke to the students and their families about the importance of education and the pride The Kent Companies takes in being able to help students. The students were then called up to receive their $1,000 checks and get their pictures taken.
