Scholarship program honors students who are making a difference

Find out why they were chosen to receive $1000 scholarships

Dozens of Michigan students are getting special recognition for their ability to uplift their peers or their community. McDonald’s is shining a light on these students through its Black and Positively Golden Scholarship Program.

Twenty-eight high school seniors from across Michigan are each receiving a one thousand dollar scholarship. It’s all part of McDonald’s celebration of Black History Month.

“These high school seniors are chosen not based on GPAs, but on leadership, what they do in the community, what they do for their families to help support their families, and how they are just good citizens,” explained McDonald’s owner-operator Monique Vann Brown.

“It’s important for us to give back and to support our young people in the community,” said McDonald’s owner-operator Jon Campbell, Sr. He expressed that he hopes the recognition from this scholarship program will help the students to feel appreciated and that they will continue to uplift their communities.
