Each senior was chosen to receive a $1,000 scholarship to help enrich their future college plans. The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides a one-time $1,000 scholarship 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.
