June 15, 2015 -  By

GreenPal, an Uber-style landscape company, named Texas A&M business student Jason Gordman the recipient of its $2,000 “Tomorrow’s Entrepreneur” scholarship. Gordman was selected from a pool of more than 300 applicants across the country.

“The money will be a big help to my family and me,” said Gordman. “It is nice to receive recognition for some of my accomplishments thus far, but more importantly, it motivates me to work even harder now. It means a lot that the GreenPal team sees potential in me.”

Gordman is the second winner of GreenPal’s twice-annual scholarship. He boasts a 4.0 GPA and owns his own landscape services company. Gordman also has several technology-based business plans ready to take flight after graduation.

“We have a lot of fun with the semiannual scholarship essay contest,” said GreenPal founder and CEO Bryan Clayton. “It’s a thrill to give back to budding entrepreneurs. We believe the future of our country will be forged by the entrepreneurial spirit of today’s generation. We just want to do our part by encouraging entrepreneurism.”

Clayton created the scholarship to encourage and reward hardworking student entrepreneurs. Clayton started his first company, a lawn mowing business, while still in high school. While attending college, he grew the company to more than 100 employees and eventually sold it to a national organization.
