The Comcast Foundation announced the 2012 recipients of its annual Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program awards, including Los Alamos High School student Benjamin Schilling.
“Each year, we are excited to provide scholarships for these talented students,” said Charisse R. Lillie, president of the Comcast Foundation and vice president, Community Investment of Comcast Corporation.
“Comcast seeks students who demonstrate leadership abilities in school activities and who reflect a strong commitment to community service.  These students are our future leaders and we hope these scholarships will help to power their dreams for success.”
“We continue to be impressed each year by the talented and deserving Leaders and Achievers scholarship recipients who not only demonstrate leadership, but also give back to their communities,” said Chris Dunkeson, Comcast New Mexico vice president.  “We are proud to recognize the success and potential of these outstanding 25 New Mexico student leaders as they prepare for the next step in what we know will be bright futures.”
The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides $1,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools and who serve as models for their fellow students.
The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
To date, Comcast has awarded more than $17 million to more than 17,000 Leaders and Achievers Scholarship winners.
