Maggie Collins, whose parents are full-time employees at Bill Plemmons RV World of Winston-Salem, NC, has been chosen to receive the Mike Molino RV Learning Center Scholarship for the academic year 2021-2022. Endowed through the Kindlund Family Foundation, the $2,500 award goes to a deserving RV industry employee or their dependent enrolled in undergraduate studies.

Collins is a communications major, maintaining a near-perfect 3.94 GPA, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. As an avid writer and photographer, she aspires to apply her knowledge, passion, and skills within the RV industry.

“We share in Maggie’s and her parents’ excitement over being awarded the RV Learning Center College Scholarship,” said Shawna Plemmons, vice president of Bill Plemmons RV World. “Maggie will be a great addition to the industry after graduating.”

The Kindlund family, which endowed the scholarship program with $270,000, remains active in the RV industry even after selling its corporation, Holiday RV Superstores, in 1999. Newt Kindlund serves as Director Emeritus on the RV Learning Center Board of Directors. “This scholarship is one of the oldest in the industry and we are very proud to have established it over 20 years ago,” Kindlund said.

The Learning Center’s scholarship program recognizes deserving rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Applicants are judged on their current RV industry involvement or their plan to seek employment in the industry upon graduation, academic achievement, extracurricular activities and honors, financial need, and a 500-word essay on their goals and objectives after college. The program has awarded $75,000 to 30 students since its inception in 2000.

The Mike Molino RV Learning Center is a leading resource for targeted publications, certification programs, online learning, and live workshops – all designed exclusively for dealership staff. The professional development and educational resources offered by the Learning Center help dealers maintain professionalism and efficiency.
