PAPILLION, Neb. - February 13, 2018

Local home repair contractor Thrasher is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for students entering into, or continuing, their education. The Thrasher Redefine Scholarship Fund will award two $1,000 scholarships each year, one award given to a student seeking a 4-year degree, and one seeking a trade school degree.

The scholarship was established to celebrate and expand upon Thrasher's mission to redefine the construction industry. “To us, that means providing a remarkable homeowner experience, the best products and services, continually improving our craft as a team, and acting as an advocate for the community,” said Dan Thrasher, President, Thrasher. “But the message to 'redefine' can be embraced by anyone, and that's the challenge we're posing to the next generation by offering this scholarship.”

The application process invites students from all walks of life to share their take on the “redefine” message and what it means to challenge the status quo and create impact in their own community, school or workplace.

“We're hoping to see creativity and sincerity in the applications we receive,” commented Jess Lightner, Content Manager, Thrasher, “and the tremendous potential we've seen within the youth in our own community gives me no doubt we'll be inspired by the response.”

The annual deadline for applications is always May 30, and students may learn more and apply online at [Link expired].
