Jennifer Slabaugh, of Syracuse, was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Quality Dining. Slabaugh is a Wawasee High School student and plans to attend Indiana Wesleyan University to major in elementary education.
Since 2001, Quality Dining has funded nearly $1.4 million in Continuing Education Scholarships in Michigan, Indiana and Florida.
“We thank our customers for their continued support of our scholarship program,” says Gerald O. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of the BURGER KING Division at Quality Dining. “We extend our congratulations to all our 2013 scholarship recipients and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”
The Burger King McLamoresm Foundation scholarship program was designed to recognize students who maintain academic standards and are also involved in co-curricular and/or community service activities. The recipient may be, but does not have to be, a Burger King employee. In 2013, the foundation will award a total of 17,064 scholarships to deserving students and employees across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, representing over $20 million in awards since 2000.
