Beu Jeans for Scholarships
The concept for Beu Jeans for Scholarships materialized during a Beu staff retreat when an employee requested a jeans day during Homecoming week, and that perhaps employees would contribute something in exchange. Beu employees may contribute $5 on Fridays for the privilege of wearing blue jeans to work, and those contributions support the Beu Jeans scholarship, which assists students preparing to enter the health field.
