Hyannis Chick-fil-A owner Annmarie Reissner announced that one of of her staff received a national scholarship from Chick-fil-A.  

"We’re proud to announce that Yanilda Montford (“Yanni”), a Team Member at the Hyannis Chick-fil-A has received a scholarship through Chick-fil-A’s Remarkable Futures initiative. Yanni was one of 3,424 students around the country chosen to receive $2,500 to begin or continue their education at the educational institute of their choice. Yanni plans to use the funds to attend Cape Cod Community College."

Each of Chick-fil-A’s 2017 scholarship recipients were nominated by their restaurant’s independent franchise operator and were chosen from thousands of team member students throughout the country to receive this scholarship based on factors like leadership and community involvement, in addition to academic achievement.

Chick-fil-A expanded its scholarship initiative this year, giving team members nationwide a total of nearly $9 million in 2017 toward the higher education institution of their choice.  These funds can be used at any accredited institute of higher education. Whether they choose online, two-year, technical programs or traditional college experiences, Chick-fil-A team members have the flexibility to get the education that’s right for them. And, all Chick-fil-A team members, whether they receive these scholarship funds or not, can get discounts at more than 70 schools through the scholarship initiative. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
