Quality Dining, Inc., the local Burger King franchisee, announced that Cedar Springs graduate Levi Whipple was the winner of a $1,000 scholarship from their business. Levi plans to attend Michigan Technological University and major in Chemical Engineering.
The Burger Kin Scholarship was designed to recognize students who maintain academic standards and are also involved in co-curricular and/or community service activities. The recipient may be, but does not have to be, a Burger King employee.
“We thank our customers for their continued support of our scholarship program,” said Gerald O. Fitzpatrick, Senior Vice President of the Burger King Division at Quality Dining. “We extend our congratulations to all our 2011 scholarship recipients and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”
They awarded $114,000 in continuing education scholarships for high school seniors in 2011.
