Kelci Garrison Receives $1,000 Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship
Chick-fil-A has selected Tucker resident Kelci Garrison as a recipient of the chain’s $1,000 Leadership Scholarship.
Garrison was nominated by Brad Spratte, operator of the Chick-fil-A at Northlake Festival restaurant. Garrison has worked for Chick-fil-A for more than three years. She is a graduate of St. Pius X High School and is currently attending Georgia Perimeter College.
"The program recognizes employees who demonstrate the leadership and character qualities to build a successful life, while offering tangible assistance to enrich their lives with education beyond high school," said Brad Spratte. "Kelci has the potential to accomplish great things."
The Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship Program began in 1973 out of founder Truett Cathy’s desire to incent restaurant employees to further their education. Since the program’s inception, more than 3,100 team members have received scholarships, bringing the total amount to nearly $30 million.
In addition, all recipients are eligible for Chick-fil-A's S. Truett Cathy Scholar Award, which provides an additional $1,000 scholarship to the top 25 Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship recipients each year.
