$1500 Opportunity: The Kyle gohr leadership scholarship
This scholarship was inspired by an AdvantaClean employee. As a military veteran, Kyle saw firsthand how PTSD and substance abuse affected those around him, after coming back from deployment. Rather than stand on the sidelines, his passion is to work for Veterans Affairs as a counselor, and is currently pursuing his degree. The founding of AdvantaClean started with a mission to help people, and we couldn't be more proud to support Kyle in his venture.
That is why the Kyle Gohr Leadership Scholarship was started. In Kyle's honor, we would like to broaden our support, by offering a $1500 scholarship to those pursuing a degree in mental health. For AdvantaClean, this is a way for us recognize and say thank you for the sacrifices people like Kyle make to better our communities.
