The scholarship program can assist full-time ServNet auction employees, their children, stepchildren and grandchildren.
Greater Rockford AA completes project to improve safety
Additionally, in other news, Greater Rockford Auto Auction has completed a large bollard installation project, according to ServNet.
To protect people from vehicles, the auction had a total of 161 total bollards installed in its six-lane facility.
New bollards were installed on both the sale apron approach and inside the sale lanes. The planning and design stages of the project began in June of 2017, and the project was finally completed in December.
The bollard initiative stems from GRAA's Customer Care Project, which includes a full and comprehensive plan for the safety of auction customers, employees and vendors.
"We are excited to complete our bollard installation as a piece of our Customer Care Project," GRAA auction general manager Chad Anderson said in a news release. "The safety of our customers and employees is a top priority and the response from everyone has been nothing short of outstanding. We continue to work on new and improved safety initiatives daily as we move forward."
