In 2007, Papa’s lost one of its valued employees to Leukemia. Georgia Harris was an employee for 20 years at Papa’s, she was not only a co-worker, but a great friend as well. In her honor, we have created the Georgia Harris Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship is to help one of our employees with college expenses. Each year employees are able to apply for the scholarship through the Oregon Student Assistance Commission (OSAC). The selection board at OSAC chooses the recipient of the fund.
Georgia was the office manager, so Papa’s has decided to have a fundraiser every year on Administrative Professionals Day to raise money for the scholarship. 50% of the in-house sales will be donated to the fund, in hopes that the fund will grow and help more employees in the future.
If you are an employee or a dependent of an employee that has worked for more than one year, you can find more information on the scholarship at www.OregonStudentAid.gov. The scholarship is listed under “Harris-Georgia Memorial” #509MX. The deadline to apply is March 1st of each year.
