Jonesboro, AR – Clean schools mean happier students and faculty, but for a local cleaning company, the partnership doesn’t end when the mops are put away. SG360, a facility services company in Jonesboro, is proud to extend its partnership with the local school district, hiring a Valley View High School student as a summer intern and investing in the robotics program at the Northeast Arkansas Career & Tech Center.
“We don’t want to just be a vendor for our local schools,” said Robert Pastori, SG360 branch manager. “Many of our employees work here in Jonesboro, and many have children in these schools. The partnership we have is important – and very personal – to us, and we want to show our support in any way we can.”
The company recently hired Phoebe Brown, a Valley View High School student, who just finished her junior year. A straight-A student, she hopes to pursue a college education in engineering with possibly a minor in journalism. She is working on a variety of writing and marketing projects for the company over the summer.
SG360 also recently donated to the robotics program at the Career & Tech Center, where Brown and her team are working on designing new technology that could one day allow cleaning crews, like those from SG360 who clean her high school, work more efficiently. The team hopes to have a prototype of a new invention before the end of the year.
“This partnership is not only an investment in our local education, but it may very well be an investment in our industry,” Pastori said. “These students are so talented, and we’re excited to see what they create!”
