Our Scholarship Program
Metro Car Wash believes passionately in education as well the equal opportunity for everyone to get one. That’s why we founded the Metro Car Wash / Harkin Scholarship with Jeremy Harkin, a Tucson High School English teacher.
Our goal is simple: to provide at least one Tucson graduating high school student per year with the funding for at least one full year of tuition at Pima Community College.
Congratulations Claire Gunther, the Metro/Harkin Scholarship winner for 2012-2013!
Claire Gunther is a graduate of Sahuaro High School in Tucson. Claire impressed our Scholarship Board by maintaining a rigorous work schedule (2 jobs), while also maintaining a high GPA and still finding time to volunteer. Her community involvement has included babysitting for single mothers who could not afford child care (a service through her church) and volunteering as a children’s swim instructor through her former swim team (Orcas). Claire is looking forward to helping with Metro’s Zombie Wash 2012, as well as joining the Scholarship Board to help choose next year’s recipient. Claire is majoring in Hotel and Restaurant Management.
