GREAT VALU ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS
East Earl, PA – May, 2012 - Shady Maple has awarded its eighth-annual Great Scholarships for Great Students scholarship to Ryan Carter of Narvon.
The independent owners of Great Valu Supermarkets underwrite the Great Scholarships for Great Students program, which has awarded more than $260,000 in scholarships to date. It is through this scholarship program that Great Valu stores recognize the commitment of high school students to their education and communities. The Great Scholarships for Great Students Program enables a deserving high school senior in each of our retail markets, in addition to a number of store associates in our overall marketing group, to receive a $1,000 scholarship to help defray the cost of their post-secondary education.
The program is managed by Great Valu’s Scholarship Committee, which selected the winners. The applicants represented a broad cross section of outstanding seniors from all the markets served by Great Valu stores, making final scholarship recipient selections difficult. Selections were made based on a variety of considerations, including academic standing, grade-point averages, extra-curricular activities and individual student life challenges.
The independently owned and operated Great Valu stores actively support the scholarship program as a means to strengthen commitments to the communities they serve. Great Valu stores are supplied by SUPERVALU, one of the nation’s largest food wholesale distributors. SUPERVALU’s Eastern Region is headquartered in Mechanicsville, Virginia.
