Meet Bradley Shaffer. Bradley launched Shaffer’s Suds to Go which brings high quality and detailed car washes to a customer whether it be at the customer’s home or place of business. Realizing that automatic car washes didn’t do as well of a job as his hand washes, Bradley began to look into the mobile car wash industry. Upon learning that the mobile car wash industry has been around for several years yet Blair County was an untapped market for such a business, Bradley decided to capitalize on the opportunity.
Bradley was selected by the Blair County YEA! Investor Panel to represent the program at the YEA! National Saunders Scholars Competition in New York last month.

Meet AnnMarie Pfiester. Recognizing a need for additional resources for people who teach or provide programs to children, AnnMarie created Fun to Learn Kits. Many of the individuals who provide these programs work with limited time and budgets to develop interactive activities. Fun to Learn Kits would make the learning experience fun and interactive while allowing teachers and professionals to save time and money, increase the time they spend with the children and decrease the time it takes to develop activities. Fun To Learn Kits, LLC, would provide complete kits on various topics as well as an opportunity to have customized kits developed.
