"We are proud to support future generations by providing financial contributions that will assist students as they expand their educational horizons and strive to achieve their professional goals,” says Kevin Kormondy, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Big O Tires. “The Big O Tires Scholarship Fund has not only impacted the lives of the scholarship recipients, but our internal organization as well; it reminds us about the power of education and giving back to the community. We feel fortunate that we are able to do so through this fund and we look forward to continuing for years to come.”
