Steven Gehlen has been awarded Builders Site Protection's 2011 Young Entrepreneur Business Scholarship. Steven is pursuing his undergraduate degree in Business Management at the University of Oregon.

Vista, CA, August 13, 2011 --( Builders Site Protection is pleased to announce today that the annual Young Entrepreneur Business Scholarship has been awarded to a highly motivated undergraduate student attending the University of Oregon. Builders Site Protection was inundated with impressive candidates but found Steven Gehlen to stand out from the crowd. Steven is pursuing a degree in Business Management and has already prepared a detailed business plan for his upcoming venture and has showed great motivation to become an entrepreneur. “I have always wanted to run a business,” Steven says. “I am thrilled that Builders Site Protection awarded me this scholarship because it will provide some financial assistance in meeting my goals.”

Each candidate applying for the Young Entrepreneur Business Scholarship submitted a questionnaire that assessed their leadership skills, creativity, determination, and drive to succeed. Several top candidates were then interviewed and given the opportunity to discuss their business and entrepreneurial goals. The vision and detail in Steven’s proposal and his enthusiasm during the interview convinced Builders Site Protection to award him the scholarship.

Not only does Steven have lofty goals of his own, he was also able to provide Builders Site Protection with some thoughtful recommendations for streamlining the business. “Steven’s determination to succeed is inspiring,” says Pat Mullen, CEO of Builders Site Protection. “I am confident that he will be a successful business owner someday.”
