The Petra Huppert HEART Scholarship
Share |

Petra Huppert, owner of The Home Cleaning Pro in Anchorage, Alaska, was a charter member of ARCSI, having joined in September 2004. Despite the distance, she was a fixture at ARCSI Conventions and Leadership Conferences. Not only was she a strong supporter of ARCSI and committed to attending ARCSI events, but she was also committed to learning and to improving her business.


Petra lost her courageous battle with cancer in 2013. The last ARCSI event she attended was the 2012 Leadership Conference. At that event, Petra reached out to a new member who was attending her first ARCSI event. This new member lived over an hour from Orlando and had planned to drive back and forth each day. Petra not only offered to share her hotel room, but helped the new member get the most from the conference. After the event, Petra continued to follow up, sending the new member materials to help her business and helping her over the rough spots that everyone faces in their first few years of business.


To honor Petra’s memory, her dedication to learning and her commitment to her professional trade association, ARCSI, with the help of Peter Chakonas of Pride Klean, created the “Huppert Education and Relationships (HEART) Convention Scholarship” to give a small company the opportunity to learn from their peers at the annual ARCSI Convention. The scholarship includes: Convention registration, hotel accommodations at the ARCSI headquarters hotel for four nights, a $200 stipend to cover miscellaneous expenses and a full year of mentoring from an ARCSI member. The scholarship recipient will be required to provide their own transportation to the convention as part of their commitment.


Criteria to apply includes:

  • A sincere commitment to grow your business
  • Business will have no more than 5 employees (including the owner)
  • Have been in business at least two years
  • Company is an ARCSI member
  • Must be able to attend the ARCSI Convention
  • Applicant must be the owner of the company
