Plain Green, LLC, a wholly-owned business of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, recently recognized five employees who are attending college while working full-time for the company.
“We understand the value of education in opening new opportunities, advancing careers and creating greater prosperity,” said Jay Abbasi, chief executive officer of Plain Green. “We also know that balancing a full-time job with school, family and other obligations requires tremendous effort and diligence.”
In support of the company’s commitment to higher education, Plain Green Loans offers full-time employees the opportunity for tuition assistance by paying up to $5,000 per year to help with college tuition, books and fees.
Five Plain Green Loans full-time employees who are enrolled in college are Kayla Lodgepole, Sharlene Yellowtail, Savannah Stump, Yesenia Zarco and Porfirio Zarco. Three of the employees were named on the Stone Child College Dean’s list for their academic achievements: Kayla Lodgepole, Sharlene Yellowtail, and Porfirio Zarco.
“We are very proud of our team members who are attending college and are continuing to provide superior customer service to our clients,” said Steve Parker, director of operations at Plain Green. “We applaud their abilities to perform at a high level in their secondary education while balancing full-time employment. Our company has grown to 100 employees with the majority – 70% – being tribal members. A major factor in our growth and the success of our employees is that we respect tribal traditions and believe that higher education will benefit our community on the whole.”
