The Comcast Foundation announced recently the 2011 recipients of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. Among the winners is Richmond Hill High School graduate Veronica Fay.
“Comcast is proud of its Leaders and Achievers scholarship recipients,” said Andy Macke, vice president of government and community affairs for Comcast’s Atlanta region. “They represent some of the best and brightest high school seniors who also demonstrate civic involvement in the communities we serve across the state.
“We are thrilled to support their educational efforts with these scholarships.”
The Comcast Foundation was founded in 1999 to provide charitable support to its local communities and to empower and enrich lives.
The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides one-time $1,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students.
The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to be prepared for the future, to engage youth in their communities, and to demonstrate the importance of civic involvement and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
