Each year, the Whirlpool Foundation recognizes and rewards children of employees at the company’s various locations for their academic and personal achievements, leadership and community involvement.

The recognition comes with the Sons and Daughters Scholarship competition.

“To have the chance to see these future leaders in this stage of their lives is a real treat and to provide them with support for their next stage is an honor,” said Jeff Noel, president, Whirlpool Foundation. “We take so much pride in supporting the sons and daughters of our employees with this scholarship program. This is a 60-year tradition, founded by our company’s earliest leaders, and one that we hold with the highest admiration. Congratulations to all of this year’s Whirlpool Foundation Sons & Daughters Scholarship winners.”

The Cleveland winners are Amanda McFarland, four-year scholarship, Tennessee Tech University; Riley Kralik, Honor Award, Middle Tennessee State; Alyssa Slifko, Honor Award, Chattanooga State; and Kayla Wilcox, Random, Cleveland State Community College.

Whirlpool Foundation, the primary philanthropic arm of Whirlpool Corporation, was established in 1951 as a way for the company to assist nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities in which Whirlpool operates. Since its inception, the Foundation has granted more than $195 million to a variety of charitable groups.
