Great Valu names scholarship winner
Deltaville Great Valu has awarded its fifth annual Great Scholarships for Great Students scholarship to Gregory Dorsey of Hartfield, a senior at Middlesex High School.
The independent owners of Great Valu Supermarkets underwrite the Great Scholarships for Great Students program, which has awarded over $170,000 in scholarships to date. It is through this scholarship program that Great Valu stores recognize the commitment of high school students to their education and communities.
The Great Scholarships for Great Students Program enables a deserving high school senior in each of the Great Valu retail markets, in addition to a number of store associates in its overall marketing group, to receive a $1,000 scholarship to help defray the cost of their post-secondary education.
The program is managed by Great Valu’s Scholarship Committee, which selected the winners. The applicants represented a broad cross section of outstanding seniors from all the markets served by Great Valu stores, making final scholarship recipient selections difficult. Selections were made based on a variety of considerations, including academic standing, grade-point averages, extra curricular activities and individual student life challenges.
The independently owned and operated Great Valu stores actively support the scholarship program as a means to strengthen commitments to the communities they serve.
