WACO, Texas – (Oct. 26, 2011) – The Dwyer Group recently announced the launch of a 2012 scholarship program for employees at its 2011 Annual Reunion and 30th anniversary celebration at the J.W. Marriott in Indianapolis.

  To mark its 30th anniversary, the company will accept applications to grant thirty $1,500 scholarships to eligible full-time employees of The Dwyer Group and full-time employees of franchisees who are planning to enroll or are enrolled in coursework at certain undergraduate, graduate, and trade schools. Eligible candidates will have been continuously employed by the respective company for a minimum of two years.

  “For employees needing financial assistance in order to obtain their educational goals, we wanted to take the opportunity to honor them and their hard work,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens, chairwoman and CEO of The Dwyer Group. “The Dwyer Group’s hope is that these scholarships will help build talent, knowledge and skills that we value.”

  Since launching Rainbow International in 1981, The Dwyer Group has grown over three decades to include Mr. Rooter, Aire Serv, Mr. Electric, Mr. Appliance, Glass Doctor and The Grounds Guys in that order. Like the 30th anniversary theme of “Customers First,” Dwyer-Owens credits much of the success for the brands to dedicated associates, service technicians and customer service representatives across the system who deliver a valuable experience to their customers. This scholarship program honors them with a program to further their goals.

  Applications and guidelines for the scholarships are available at http://www.dwyergroup.com/scholarships.asp and may be submitted online from November 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011. The award recipients will be determined by a scholarship committee and will be awarded on February 1, 2012.
