CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 9, 2019--
Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) today announced the establishment of the
Cintas Professional Development Excellence Endowment through The
University of Southern Mississippi Foundation. The endowment was
generously funded by Cintas Senior Vice President, Todd Gregory.
“I want to invest in young people and help pave the way for their
professional future to ensure they have the same opportunities that I
had,” said Gregory. “My education from The University of Southern
Mississippi set me up for professional success, and I hope that many USM
students benefit from this endowment.”
The Cintas Professional Development Excellence Endowment can be used for
professional development, professional attire and travel funding for the
more than 2,250 students in the College of Business and Economic
Development. Professional development opportunities include
opportunities like: etiquette dinners; leadership training;
entrepreneurship training; certification courses not offered on campus
(i.e. Microsoft Office); funding for conference attendance; out-of-town
internships/externships; and other types of training.
“We are incredibly grateful for Todd’s continuing support to USM over
the years,” said Dr. Faye Gilbert, dean of the USM College of Business.
“I hope this gift will inspire others to reflect on the USM programs
that impacted their lives and invest in Southern Miss students’
education and professional development.”
Over the past 10 years, more than 100 USM graduates have been hired by
Cintas. Many USM graduates hired by Cintas have ascended into management
and leadership roles.
