Ten graduating seniors from the Raleigh area received $500 scholarship grants from Wegmans Food Markets as part of its annual Employee Scholarship Program — one way the company strives to help employees pursue higher education.

The local recipients are: Makayla Evans-Coleman and Lekira Moore from Needham B. Broughton High School; Juliana Salcido and Julia Ryan from Cardinal Gibbons High School; Jean Marie Niyoyankunze and Ananda Sciulli from Enloe Magnet High School; Roberto Alejandro Alvarenga Dias and Michael Edward Brown from Millbrook Magnet High School; and Cameron Moore and Anthony Jarvis from Jesse O. Sanderson High School. 

Wegmans Food Markets partnered with each school to select two students who exemplify the family-owned company’s values of caring, respect, high standards, empowerment and making a difference.

“We value making a difference in our community, and helping students succeed is one of our most important giving priorities,” says Wegmans Raleigh Store Manager Hallie Johnston. “We’re happy to award honorary scholarships this year and we look forward to celebrating the first class of Wegmans Raleigh employee scholarship recipients in 2020.”

Since the program began in 1984, more than 38,500 Wegmans employees have been awarded scholarships totaling $120 million.
