HD Supply Facilities Maintenance Supports the Education of Hospitality Professionals in Texas

In January, HD Supply Facilities Maintenance proudly sponsored the Texas Hotel and Lodging Association’s (THLA) Short Course educational programs for the third consecutive year, thanks to the support and backing of Doug Peterson, Vice President of Sales—Hospitality.


THLA Short Course scholarship recipients and HD Supply staff members get their learning on together!

Each year, more than 200 hospitality professionals descend upon the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston to participate in THLA’s unique program, an all-in-one training and motivational opportunity geared to further education and advance careers. The THLA’s Annual Short Course has been recognized as the “Best Educational Program” in the nation by the International Society of Hotel Association Executives.

In addition to serving as a headlining sponsor, HD Supply sent Jason Bustos, Hospitality Specialist, to participate in the program and funded a number of scholarships for hospitality professionals who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to attend the program. Professionals from across the Lone Star State submitted applications to be considered for a scholarship, and 10 deserving recipients were chosen.

Breck Hamrock, Hospitality Regional Sales Manager and a graduate of both the Short Course and Advanced Short Course, attended this year’s event to meet scholarship winners and support the educational efforts of this award-winning program.

We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with THLA and our investment in the future leaders of the lodging industry.
