Attleboro resident Katherine Potter, North Attleboro resident Benjamin Chagnon, and Plainville resident Jessica Brooks were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisees of Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts recently, during a reception at the Rhode Island State House celebrating the 14th Annual Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship Program.
Each year, Dunkin’ Donuts awards 100 high school seniors and college students from Rhode Island and Bristol County, Massachusetts, who excel academically, demonstrate leadership qualities, and are involved with the community. In the 14 years that local Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees have funded the program, more than $1.4 million in scholarships that have been awarded to area students to help further their education, demonstrating the franchisee’s long-standing commitment to supporting youth and education-based programs in the community.
“Now more than ever, hard working families are watching every penny, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to offer the Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship to the students in our communities once again,” said Joe Prazeres, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee and Chairman of the Dunkin’ Donuts Advertising Committee for the Providence market. “We are so proud of this year’s recipients, and know that they will be successful in whatever paths they choose to follow.”
