Comcast recently announced that it has awarded $91,000 in scholarships for the 2018-19 school year to 85 Michigan students as part of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program. Among these students is Dylan Offman, a senior at Huron High School, from New Boston, MI. The program, funded by the Comcast Foundation, is a one-time, $1,000 scholarship awarded to the best and brightest high school seniors for their community service, academic performance and leadership skills. Since 2001, more than $28 million has been awarded to nearly 27,000 high school seniors across the country as part of the Leaders and Achievers Program.
“Congratulations to the winners from across Michigan who have demonstrated leadership through their commitment to academics as well as serving their local communities,” said Tim Collins, regional senior vice president for Comcast in Michigan. “We recognize their achievements with this scholarship award, and we are encouraged by their passion and commitment to develop into tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.”
The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who strive to achieve their full potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as role models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
