Bend, OR, March 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Surface protection and dust control supplier Builders Site Protection announced today that they are now accepting applications for the annual Young Business Entrepreneur Scholarship. The mission of Builders Site Protection in offering this scholarship is to encourage high school seniors interested in pursuing a college degree in business with the desire to start their own company upon graduation. The scholarship targets students that intend to seek business opportunities in the construction and remodeling industries or a related field.
President of Builders Site Protection Patricia Mullen started the scholarship program in 2006. Patricia was inspired to begin offering a scholarship designed to encourage future business owners in construction-industry related fields because of her dogged pursuit and ultimate success in designing and marketing innovative surface protection materials. Pat is responsible for creating wildly successful surface protection products such as DoorGuard™ and ToiletSheath™ that provide builders and remodelers with materials that prevent damage to expensive finishes such as doors, toilets, cabinets, floors, and carpets from damage during the construction process. Builders Site Protection’s Tubskin™ tub protection was #9 on Remodeling Magazine’s list of the 100 Top New Products of 2007. Ms. Mullen states, “I believe that it is incredibly important to encourage innovation and risk-taking in young entrepreneurs and to provide them with the tools necessary to succeed in their business enterprises. This scholarship is an incentive for high school students to pursue their higher education dreams and to make their future construction-industry business a reality.”
