Comcast Names 90 Students as Leaders and Achievers Scholars in Western Washington and Spokane County for 2012-13

 The Comcast Foundation today announced the names of 90 recipients in Western Washington and Spokane County of the 2012-13 annual Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program awards.

“Each year, we are excited to provide scholarships for these talented students,” said Charisse R. Lillie, President of the Comcast Foundation and Vice President, Community Investment, of Comcast Corp. “Comcast seeks students who demonstrate leadership abilities in school activities and who reflect a strong commitment to community service.  These students are our future leaders, and we hope these scholarships will help to power their dreams for success.”

“All the young people on this list have built impressive track records of service to others, and show great potential to community service throughout their lives. We’re proud to help these young people along with their education and careers, just as they’ve already been helping the community throughout their high school years,” said Len Rozek, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Washington market.

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program provides $1,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.

To date, Comcast has awarded more than $17 million to more than 17,000 Leaders and Achievers Scholarship winners.
