The Rising Star Award, although presented by the Moyers is a partner to the Hotel's recognition program, the Service Star and an important part of how the Employee of the Year is selected each year.
"Rachael and I are adamant about the role education plays and in inspiring the young people who work in the hotels in following their dreams while also pursuing further training," Moyer said "With that said, every year we make budget at the properties, we give back $2500 to the Rising Scholarship Fund and grant out up to half of what the balance totals. Someday soon, we hope to see a funding stream that sends many employees and their kids to school."
Mrs. Moyer operates Historica, a private consulting firm. Moyer serves both hotels as Vice President of Operations and Development. Both High and Peterson plan to use the scholarships to help them gain their Associates Degrees from North Arkansas College in Harrison where they are currently enrolled.
