HALO Branded Solutions Donates to Bill Schmidt Sr. Scholarship Fund
Liz and CJ Schmidt, owners of Largo, Florida-based Hit Promotional Products, established this scholarship in memory of Bill Schmidt, Sr., who passed away in April, with a $50,000 donation.
One deserving student in the industry will receive a $1,000 Bill Schmidt Sr. Scholarship starting in 2017 and continuing in perpetuity. HALO Branded Solutions also is a Tomorrow Fund donor, with a commitment of $12,000 to PPEF.
According to Marc Simon, HALO CEO, “Our additional financial commitment to PPEF through the Bill Schmidt Sr. Scholarship reflects our respect for a man and a family that have done great things to move our industry forward,” said Marc Simon, CEO of HALO Branded Solutions.
PPEF was founded by industry leaders as a way to give back to the promotional products industry. PPEF offers college scholarships, ranging from $1,000 for one year to $8,000 over four years, to industry personnel and their children. Since 1989, PPEF has awarded over $1.5 million in scholarships.
