FINDLAY, Ohio — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has awarded scholarships to six high school students — children of Cooper employees in the U.S. — who are pursuing higher education.
This year, the tire maker awarded the first-ever Roy V. Armes scholarship, in the amount of $5,000. The five Cooper Centennial Scholarships were awarded in the amount of $1,000 each.
The Armes Scholarship was established in 2016 to honor Mr. Armes, former Cooper chairman, CEO and president, upon his retirement. The scholarship is focused on high-achieving students who will attend a four-year institution of higher learning to pursue careers in business or engineering.
The first recipient of the Armes Scholarship is Ryan Stuckey, the 18-year-old son of Nick Stuckey, a lead engineer for Cooper's Global Technical Center, and his wife, Annette.
