Comcast Foundation Presents Scholarships To D.C. Students

Students receive Comcast Scholarships

District of Columbia students that received 2013 Comcast Leaders and Achievers scholarships gather with John Conwell, Vice President of Government and Community Affairs for Comcast; Washington, D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray; and Tom Tucker, Senior Director of Government and Community Affairs for Comcast at a special event held at Comcast’s offices in Northwest Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, May 28. 

This year, the Comcast Foundation presented 12 high school seniors in the District with $1,000 scholarships through the program, which recognizes students for their academic achievement, leadership skills and commitment to community service.

In addition, after a prize drawing at the event, Kyndall Brown of Duke Ellington School of the Arts won an iPad to use at college.  Since the program began, the Comcast Foundation has awarded more than $17.7 million in scholarships to 17,000 students nationwide.

Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients!
