Comcast NBCUniversal awarded nearly $60,000 in scholarships to 54 metro Atlanta students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program.
Each student will receive a one-time $1,000 scholarship to high school seniors for their community service, academic performance and leadership skills.
“I am very proud of these bright, focused and inspirational young people who represent our State so well,” said state Rep. Katie Dempsey, R-Rome. “Thank you, Comcast, for recognizing their accomplishments and for your generous financial support to help them succeed in college.”
