Big O Tires Recognizes 43 Scholarship Recipients for 2015

Organization Believes in The Power of Education and Giving Back to Future Generations 

July 22, 2015 // // Palm Beach Gardens, FL – For more than 50 years, Big O Tires, one of North America's largest retail tire franchisors with nearly 400 independently-owned and operated locations in 19 states, along with its franchisees, have worked diligently to give back to the local communities they serve. Recently, the organization once again took that concept of giving back into their own hands through the Big O Tires Scholarship Fund.

The Big O Tires Scholarship Fund was established in 2003. To-date, the scholarship fund has impacted the lives of more than 200 students by providing over $300,000 in financial assistance for continuing their education and, ultimately, pursuing their dreams.

"We are proud to support future generations by providing financial contributions that will assist students as they expand their educational horizons and strive to achieve their professional goals,” said Kevin Kormondy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Big O Tires. “The Big O Tires Scholarship Fund has not only impacted the lives of the scholarship recipients, but our internal organization as well; it reminds us about the power of education and giving back to the community. We feel fortunate that we are able to do so through this fund and we look forward to continuing for years to come.”

To be eligible, applicants must be employees (or family members) of Big O or of a Big O franchisee who is graduating from high school or currently enrolled in post-secondary education courses. To be considered, applicants must complete an application, submit two essays, supply transcripts and information regarding extracurricular experience, and demonstrate financial need.
