Kohl's recognizes efforts of California youth
Submitted By Erin Kelbe
Kohl's Department Stores' "Kohl's Cares(r) Scholarship Program" recently recognized 258 California youth and more than 2,200 young volunteers nationwide who have made a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism.
Locally, three students from Fremont were among those selected:
Jennifer Zhao, age 18; Neha Verma, age 15; and Ayesha Ruqayyah Khanum, age 9.
All students will receive a $50 gift card and recognition certificate from Kohl's to honor their community service efforts. In 2012, Kohl's celebrates its 12th year of rewarding remarkable young volunteers.
Additionally, the winners will qualify for the chance to receive a $1,000 regional scholarship for post-secondary education, which Kohl's will award in July. Of the more than 200 regional winners, 10 national winners will each receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships and Kohl's will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner's behalf.
"Kohl's is thrilled to recognize more than 2,200 young volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to bettering the communities in which we live," said Julie Gardner, Kohl's executive vice president and chief marketing officer.
