Two more area youths earn Leadership Scholarships
The Chick-fil-A National Leadership Scholarship has been awarded to Christina Black of China Grove and Daniel Gonzalez of Granite Quarry.
Franchise operator Bo Hawkins, of the restaurant located at Towne Creek Commons, presented the scholarships, making them the 26th and 27th team members from that location to receive the honor.
Black is studying cosmetology at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, and Gonzalez is studying religion at Jacksonville Masterís Commission.
More than 55 years ago, Truett Cathy began the tradition of helping employees realize their college dreams by presenting a personal check to an employee. In 1973, the Leadership Scholarship program was created and continues today with $1.6 million committed this year to impact students across the country.
