Congratulations to the 2018 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Scholarship Winner!

Congratulations to Charles Rose, Owner of Action Asphalt Maintenance, on being selected as the 2018 Young Entrepreneur of the Year presented by EY and in partnership with Junior Achievement of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Charles Rose is innately focused on customer satisfaction and the prospects that will make him successful in the future, not just his accomplishments of the past. His business is poised to see great growth in 2018. Perhaps, though, Rose's greatest contributions are the ones he makes to the community. For his achievements, Rose received a scholarship/cash prize of $1,000 and was recognized at the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fameā„¢ Induction Ceremony on April 19, 2018 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.
