Marian Student Paints for Charity
Marian Football player, Jarrett Settles, paints to benefit kids with cancer
Writer / Kara Reibel
Working a summer job, most college students are focused on earning money for themselves. Jarrett Settles has a bigger goal in mind: to donate a portion of what he earns this summer to a foundation on behalf of a friend that has provided him with inspiration.
Settles, a junior and defensive lineman for Marian University, met Cole Winnefeld last year during their national championship football season. Settles will donate a portion of his earnings to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, which directly benefits kids like Cole.
Settles is a franchise owner under College Pro Painters, a company focusing on the development of young, local business leaders. College Pro has had some presence in the Broad Ripple community for five to six years and has an established customer reporting base of 95 percent customer satisfaction.
“My professional development is important to me, but one of the main drivers of my passion for business is a special friend, Cole Winnefeld,” said Settles. “Cole has been battling Neuroblastoma for about five years now and is a very inspiring young man.”
While Settles’ major is in business, his minor is in giving back.
