Oscar Winski Company Awards Scholarships

Six local scholars will find it easier paying for their college education

Lafayette, Indiana– July 18, 2012 – Over the past 105 years, the Oscar Winski Company has survived and thrived through financial storms, dramatic world events and huge changes in what was once a regional marketplace that today is global. Mike Bluestein, the Company President has seen many changes in his 41 years of service. “The one constant that we could always count on was the courage, conviction and loyalty of our associates. Without their help and the support of their families, I am not sure we could have always made it. But we have and we are here and successful today” Mike stated. Mike went on to say “we, as a family-owned company are most proud of our associates. It is for this reason that we have decided to thank them by providing a scholarship program for them and their immediate family members”.

Mike stated that six scholarships valued at $2000 each will be provided each year by the Company to fund enrollment at an institution of higher learning such as a college, university or trade school. Specific requirements are set to apply for the scholarships including an essay in answer of the following:  “Once I graduate from college how will my education help me to contribute to the betterment of my community”?

Mike explained that it is important for the Company to give back to our community. “In addition to encouraging the scholarship winners to continue their education, we also want them to be a good citizen in their community.”

Scholarship recipients were selected by a three member committee of outside members.

The 2012 scholarship winners include: Jordanna Bilyeu, Roxanne Lyman, Austin Gretencord, Savannah Dice, Nick Walker and Cody Bates.
