Winners have been selected for the 2016 “Service on 11” scholarship! After nearly 300 applicants with students sharing stories of their exceptional service, one winner and two runner ups were awarded scholarships.
The annual “Service on 11” scholarship aims to create a partnership with open-hearted, driven students who go the extra mile for others. At eMaint, we offer “Service on 11″ – when it comes to customer service, our dial doesn’t stop at 10 – we push ourselves even further to provide “Service on 11.” As this is part of our DNA as a company, we believe in offering “extra credit” for those who offer this level of dedication in their daily lives.
