In the coming months, Barnes, who recently earned a prestigious $50,000 scholarship from the Michigan-based moving company’s founder, will help his former bosses, now partners, establish a foothold in the lower part of the state...“What I like about this business is that it is about helping people, but it’s also a family atmosphere,” said Barnes, a native of Lexington who graduated from The Citadel in 2007. “The core values of this company are based on integrity and care. We have the ‘Grandma Rule.’ You know, ‘Treat everyone like they’re your grandma.’ That’s just a good way to treat people in general.”
