This school year marked the first full-year of funding into the Bulldog Powerwash Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund benefits seniors of Linn High School and is funded solely by the community through car washes. Specifically, from every Bulldog wash package purchased at the Bulldog Powerwash. $3 from every Bulldog wash package goes directly toward the scholarship fund with no cap on the amount donated.
And the Recipients Are…
This year, the Bulldog Powerwash raised a grand total of $12,100 for the Linn High School Senior Scholarship fund. The recipients received scholarships of varying amounts determined by the number of years they were enrolled at Linn High School.

How the Bulldog Powerwash Got Started
Kyle Peters, Linn Post and Pipe General Manager and Company President, saw a need for the surrounding community. He realized car and truck owners had to drive across county lines if they wanted an automatic car wash. Once he realized the need, his motivation was simple. He wanted to build up the community by providing growth within the area. He wanted to improve the appearance of the town by keeping the vehicles looking nice. So he developed a plan and brought everyone together.
As of February 2022, Washington County officially had the Bulldog Powerwash, a 24/7 automatic car wash. Courtesy of the hard-working and dedicated team at Linn Post and Pipe, there was now a fast and easy way to clean up the family car. The Bulldog Powerwash’s prices range from $9 – $15 and include features such as presoaks; spot free, high pressure, and soft water rinses; side and undercarriage durablasters; full body clear coats; cannon dryers; tri-foam conditioning; and wax protectant.
Help the Scholarship Fund Keep Growing
Kyle also had the goal to provide support for the school in the form of scholarships for graduating seniors. Since opening, a portion of the proceeds from every car wash has gone toward the Bulldog Powerwash Scholarship. And Kyle doesn’t intend to cease the Bulldog Powerwash Scholarship fund any time soon. Since May 1, 2023, every qualifying car wash has started to replenish the scholarship fund for the 2024 graduating seniors. So take advantage of the Bulldog Powerwash and turn your car wash into a scholarship for Linn High School seniors.
