NEW ALBANY, IN — A Lanesville Junior Senior High School senior was selected as the first-ever “Future of Marketing” scholarship honoree presented by SmartBox, a marketing solutions company that helps dentists thrive and is headquartered in New Albany.
Brent Hardin accepted the $1,000 scholarship during the school’s annual senior night program, May 23. He plans to attend Middle Tennessee State University with aspirations of becoming an air traffic controller.
“Brent has shown a dedication to education, and we’re happy to help him with his goal of joining the field of aviation,” said Colin Receveur, CEO of SmartBox. “This is the first year for our partnership with the school, and we’re excited to continue this relationship for years to come.”
SmartBox was listed by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in 2016 and best workplaces in the U.S. in 2017.
In addition to SmartBox’s “Future of Marketing” scholarship, this year the company also offered local students a 60-day paid entrepreneurship. Both the scholarship and entrepreneurship require that students maintain at least a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
Lanesville Junior Senior High School is a special place for SmartBox because the team includes school alumni. Receveur’s wife, Amanda Receveur, is also a graduate of Lanesville Junior Senior High School.
“Lanesville is a great community school for us to support. Our company is lucky enough to have talented team members from small schools like Lanesville, and we see our role in the company to encourage the next wave of business leaders and entrepreneurs,” Receveur said.
