LANSING, Ill. (July 5, 2019) – Jalin Turman of TF South High School has been awarded a Comcast Leaders and Achievers scholarship. Turman is one of 72 regional recipients of the scholarship this year. Comcast NBCUniversal awards more than $190,000 in scholarships to high school seniors throughout the greater Chicago region, which includes Central and Northern Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Southwest Michigan.
Students are selected for their outstanding community service, academic performance, and leadership skills. The award, funded by the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation, is a one-time, $2,500 scholarship for undergraduate education-related expenses.
“Leaders and Achievers scholarship winners are not only committed to academic excellence, they understand the importance of service and volunteerism and are leaders in their communities,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s regional senior vice president. “We’re honored to recognize their achievements and proud to support them as they continue their educational journeys.”
Comcast recognized scholarship recipients recently at a special event at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
Since 2001, more than $33 million has been awarded to nearly 30,000 high school seniors across the country as part of the Leaders and Achievers program.
