ATLANTA, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — GOGO Charters, the national motor coach reservation service, today announced its first annual scholarship, GOGO Charters National Scholarship for Immigrants and Refugees. The $10,000 award is designed to recognize an immigrant or refugee who demonstrates academic success and can articulate a dream for his or her future.
“As a child, I witnessed a civil war tear apart Albania and the impact it had on families around me,” said Armir Harris, CEO and founder of Shofur, the parent company of GOGO Charters. “When I was a teenager, my mother, sister and I immigrated to the United States to build a better life. Through hard work and the support of the community, I’ve built a growing technology company that contributes to the economy and challenges me every day. With this scholarship, I hope that others can feel the support of the country and make their own dreams a reality.”
