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.
