Burger King awards student scholarships
Submitted By Linda Donahue
The BURGER KING(r) Scholars Program awarded 32 scholarships in California. The HAVE IT YOUR WAY(r) Foundation donated over $1,000,000 in scholarships to a total of 944 students nationwide as part of the ninth annual BURGER KING(r) Scholars Program.
Among the 32 winners from California receiving $1,000, is local recipient, Hang Tran, a James Logan High School student from Union City.
Scholarship awards are intended to help students offset the cost of attending college or a post-secondary vocational/technical school. Students throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada are eligible for the scholarships. These BURGER KING(r) Scholars are selected based on their grade point average, work experience, financial need, extracurricular activities and community service.
