The Meoli Companies and local McDonald's Owner/Operator, Mike Meoli, recently established a $10,000 endowed scholarship for non-traditional students at Chesapeake College.
Designed to aid adult students who work full time, the scholarship will allow students to advance in their jobs, train for a new career and fulfill their dreams. Most non-traditional students juggle school in addition to work and family responsibilities. They often face significant financial barriers to education. This endowment is designed to ease the financial strain of education.
“After spending time on campus and visiting their new facilities, it was evident that Chesapeake College is a special place for learning,” said Mike Meoli, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “We believe that thriving educational institutions are the foundation of any strong community and we are proud to be a part of the success of their organization and students.”
The donation also reflects McDonald’s corporate commitment to provide educational opportunities for its employees. This endowment at Chesapeake College is a way of extending that corporate commitment into the community to help local students.
In Fiscal Year 2016, Chesapeake students received more than $365,000 in private scholarship support. For more information about creating scholarships at Chesapeake College, contact Lauren Halterman at email@example.com.
