What it looks like when you win a $25,000 Chick-fil-A scholarship
Back in June, Chick-fil-A presented nearly $9 million in scholarships to more than 3,400 hard-working team members across the country. Picture this: You walk into your local restaurant, expecting to start work, but instead you’re surprised with the news that you’ve earned a $2,500 or $25,000 Remarkable Futures scholarship. Not a bad day at the office.
Thanks to social media, we can all get a peek into these once-in-a-lifetime moments. Chick-fil-A Operators, along with team members’ family and friends, posted countless photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #remarkablefutures. Here are a few of our favorites:
So thankful to have been selected to receive the leadership scholarship from Chick-fil-A! This will cover a whole quarter of grad school for me! (Which in two weeks, I will only have four left! ALMOST ONE YEAR DOWN, ONE TO GO!) This is a huge blessing and I'm thankful to work for a company that cares about my future. I am SO blessed!! ❤️🐮❤️🐔❤️ #remarkablefutures
We are SO PROUD of our team members who received the competitive Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship! The scholarship was presented to: Zac Whiting, Kristy Jett, Sara D'Addio, Brianna Dayton, and Victoria Grant. We are so excited for your futures, and are honored to call you not only co-workers, but friends! #remarkablefutures #choosechicken #cfafredericksburg

We are all proud and excited for you! #RemarkableFutures
I am so proud of these incredible Team Members. Today, these four individuals were presented with a $2500 #RemarkableFutures scholarship to further pursue their education. THIS is why I love what I do. It's less the "what" we do and more of the "who" that we get to do it with. Thank you all so much for your incredible influence on my organization, my family, our community, and your individual campuses. I am so proud of your continued growth and I can't wait to see the results of your commitment to better yourselves. -Mark Cabrera
