At a special ceremony held recently at the Massachusetts State House, Comcast was joined by Secretary of Education, Matthew Malone, and state legislators to award Kori Alston and 93 other graduating high school seniors from across the state each a $1,000 college scholarship.  The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program, one of the Comcast Foundation’s signature community investment programs, annually recognizes students who have shown leadership skills, academic achievement and a commitment to community service.

“Each year, we are excited to provide Leaders and Achievers scholarships to talented students like Kori Alston who demonstrate leadership in school activities and a strong commitment to community service,” said Steve Hackley, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Greater Boston Region.  “We are proud to recognize the success and potential of such outstanding student leaders, all of whom are preparing for the next step in their educational careers.”

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program provides one-time $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 be prepared for the future, to engage youth in their communities, and to demonstrate the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.  Kori Alston’s community service work has included volunteering at Ripples of Hope, the Multicultural Bridge, and the Garden of Peace.
