2020 Companies and the Louise and Christopher B. Munday Foundation partner to bring scholarships and educational opportunities to diverse communities nationwide. They have recently awarded seventeen scholarships to students attending 4-year colleges.
This Spring Semester, seventeen students were awarded scholarships. Six of the award recipients are earning this scholarship for a second time. Eligibility was reserved for employees and dependents enrolled full-time in a 4-year degree program. Scholarship recipients attend universities nationwide, including the University of Arkansas, George Mason University, and California State University (Fresno).
“This scholarship has alleviated a lot of stress about how much it costs for me to go to school. I’ve never had a job back me up and support me as much as 2020 Companies has done for me, so it made me feel good to see that hard work is recognized at this company,” shared Andrew Simpson, first-time scholarship recipient.
Second-time recipient, Lucero Ron, stated, “It has been amazing; I am eternally grateful for this opportunity to further my education. This scholarship has provided me the chance to provide a better life for myself and my daughter. I will continue to work hard with the help of this scholarship to earn my degree in Human Resource and Development at the University of Houston.”
The 2022 Spring LCMB Scholarship applicants come from various backgrounds, celebrating the diversity and inclusiveness of 2020 Companies. This semester’s scholarship recipients pursue degrees in majors ranging from Cybersecurity to Psychology to Business Administration.
