Taking that next step into college is an exciting yet stressful time for both the students and parents. Parents are faced with the increasing cost of college tuition. The Greater New York Floor Coverers Association has been able to help alleviate that cost for the past 32 years. The Francis J.P. McHale Scholarship and the Greater New York Floor Coverers Association Scholarship were awarded to three well deserving graduates. Two of which, were child of our very own Consolidated Carpet associates.
This year, we could not ask for a better day to celebrate and award three outstanding students at the annual Greater New York Floor Coverers Association Luncheon on June 2, 2016. John Kirkwood has been an installer at Consolidated for 30 years. His son, Joseph, was the proud recipient of the 2016 Francis J.P. McHale Scholarship. Joseph will be starting his next chapter at James Madison University in the Fall.
Nickel John graciously accepted the GNYFC Scholarship while his mother, Amelia John, proudly watched from the audience. Amelia works in the accounting department at Consolidated and is excited for Nickel’s success and future at the NYC College of Technology.
Consolidated Carpet is confident that these winners will uphold their outstanding academics and community service throughout their college experience. We are honored to help encourage and support their journey!
