Tent manufacturer Celina Tent, Celina, Ohio, and the Grieshop family have established the Celina Tent Intern Scholarship.
Administered by the Tri-Star Career Compact and the Mercer County Civic Foundation, this $2,000 per year scholarship is renewable for four years and is awarded to students pursuing a degree in engineering technologies or business-related fields.
Made up of nine high schools in Mercer and Auglaize counties in Ohio, the Tri-Star Career Compact promotes a curriculum of programs for junior and senior students who are interested in pursuing a career in a technical field. The family of Herb and Janice Grieshop has been a long-time supporter of the Tri-Star program. All three of the Grieshop children attended Tri-Star, finding it beneficial to their success in future business development endeavors. Additionally, core members of Celina Tent’s management team have received education through the Tri-Star program.
“Tri-Star teaches students in-demand skills, and students begin their careers with the knowledge they need to succeed,” said Janice Grieshop, vice president of Celina Tent. “There are wonderful employment opportunities right here in our neighborhood, and we are grateful to be able to support the education and growth of young people in the community.”
“Companies like Celina Tent and facilities like Tri-Star are what make our community unique,” said Carol Hone, director of the Mercer County Civic Foundation. “We are grateful to everyone in our community and their generosity and willingness to support our students.”
