Allied Awards 2016 Scholarship Recipient


Collegeville, PA—Allied Wire & Cable is proud to announce the 2016 winner of a company-sponsored scholarship for children of employees. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must apply during their senior year of high school, have at least a 3.0 GPA, and submit an essay with their application. The $10,000 is payable over the course of the student’s college career. Mike Gantert from Pottsgrove High School is the recipient of the 2016 scholarship.

Since 2011, Allied Wire & Cable has provided a college scholarship for the children of its employees. There are just a few criteria that the employee and their child must meet: must be an Allied employee for at least three years, the employee’s child must have at least a 3.0 GPA, and submit an essay with their application. The recipient will get $10,000 to put towards their college tuition over four years.

The winner for 2016 is Mike Gantert, the son of longtime employee, Holly Gantert. Holly has worked for Allied since 2004, and Mike is her second child to receive this scholarship. When asked about the importance of this scholarship, Mike said, “Not only is it a recognition of my years of hard work, but also my mother, and her years of hard work for Allied Wire & Cable as well.”
Mike is a graduate of local Pottsgrove High School, and will be attending Millersville University this fall. He hopes to major in Business Marketing.

Because Allied is a family-owned and operated business, it enjoys celebrating family values by giving back to its employees. The company wishes Mike the best of luck in his college career.
