National provider of shuttle buses and transportation solutions, Carpenter Bus Sales has launched The Extra Mile Scholarship. The winners, one boy and one girl, will receive a $1,000 scholarship each for the school of their choosing.

Owner and president of Carpenter Bus Sales located in Franklin, Tenn., Henry Headden is a graduate of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Headden has held education in high regard and believes that with the proper education, students can be successful in business and in life. To that end, Headden wants to help students achieve their educational dreams.

The Extra Mile Scholarship derives its name from the company's corporate mission…to go the extra mile for our customers. This mission and directive is what sets Carpenter Bus Sales apart from other bus dealers around the country.

"My time at UT was one of the highlights of my life and I want those less fortunate to be able to experience what a university education provides," says Headden. "If we can help improve the lives of students with quality education, we want to help do so. Carpenter Bus Sales loves students and want to see them succeed in life."

According to statistics from the Institute of Education Sciences, in the fall of 2015 in the United States, over 21 million students are expected to attend colleges and universities, which is an increase of over 5.7 million students since the fall of 2000.

Headden realizes with the rising cost of education, offering any kind of financial help to students can make a huge difference. "With the rising cost of higher education being what it is, we are happy to be able to offer some financial assistance to help students fulfill their dreams."
