Annual $1,000 Scholarship for High School Seniors Headed for College
Here at Mr. Rekey, we understand the long-term value of higher education and recognize the challenges faced in earning a college degree. Our hope is that no student would ever be denied the chance to further his or her education because of financial limitations, and we want to play our part in making that dream a reality.
