ACCOVILLE, W.Va. — Buffalo Foodland has awarded its annual Foodland Scholarship to Casey Albright of Man.
The independent owners of Foodland supermarkets underwrite the Foodland Scholarship program. It is through this scholarship program that Foodland stores recognize the commitment of high school students to their education and communities. The Foodland Scholarship Program enables deserving high school seniors in our retail markets to receive a $ 1,000 scholarship to help defray the cost of their post-secondary education.
The program is managed by Foodland’s Scholarship Committee, which selected the winners. The applicants represented a broad cross section of outstanding seniors from all the markets served by Foodland stores, making final scholarship recipient selections difficult. Selections were made based on a variety of considerations, including academic standing, grade-point averages, extra-curricular activities and individual student life challenges.
The independently owned and operated Foodland stores actively support the scholarship program as a means to strengthen commitments to the communities they serve. Foodland stores are supplied by SUPERVALU, a grocery industry leader, serving customers through more than 3,400 owned, licensed, franchised and independently owned stores across the country.
SUPERVALU’s Eastern Region is headquartered in Mechanicsville, Va.
