Emily Romanoff Awarded Dunkin' Donuts Scholarship

The recent Coginchaug graduate was among 50 high school seniors across the state to receive the award.

 

The Connecticut Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisees have awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Durham student Emily Romanoff. The award was a part of the 2012 Dunkin’ Donuts Connecticut Franchisee Scholarship Program that provided a total of $50,000 in local scholarships to fifty deserving high school seniors.
 
The franchisees honored the scholarship recipients at an awards ceremony recently held at The Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford. To cap off the event, Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman was on hand to deliver a keynote address to the students. 
 
This is the ninth year that Dunkin’ Donuts has administered what has become a very successful scholarship program for Connecticut, which to date has awarded over $850,000 to local students. “At Dunkin’ Donuts we are committed to the communities we serve. As a local institution and active community partner, we want to encourage educational achievement in every way possible,” said Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee Kelly Andrade.
 
The students were selected for the scholarship on the basis of a “well rounded” character, including a positive academic record, and demonstrated leadership in school and community activities. The competition was extremely rigid, with over 3,000 Connecticut students applying for the fifty, $1,000 scholarships offered by the Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees.
