Comcast, joined by Shap Smith, Speaker of the Vermont House of Representatives, as well as Jim Porter, Director of Telecommunications and Connectivity at the Vermont Department of Public Service and Christopher Recchia, Commissioner of the Vermont Public Service Department, recognized the students at a special event held at the Vermont State House today.  The twenty recipients each received $1,000 scholarships. One student, Samantha Morse, a resident of Bomoseen and student at Fair Haven Union High School, was selected to receive an additional $9,000 Comcast Founders Scholarship – instituted in honor of Ralph J.

“In Vermont, we believe in preparing our students and making sure they have the qualifications to fill tomorrow’s jobs,” said GovernorPeter Shumlin.  “We’re making the investments in our future that will allow us to lead the way for decades to come and we appreciate that Comcast shares our commitment to developing our future leaders and helping them achieve their dreams of higher education.”

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program provides one-time $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 giving back, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.

“This year’s scholarship winners demonstrate an exemplary commitment to leadership in both their classrooms and communities,” said Michael Parker, senior vice president of Comcast’s Western New England Region, which includes Vermont.  “We are proud to recognize their achievements and are excited to support them as they continue their educational journeys.”

Since 2007, Comcast has awarded a total of $178,000 in Leaders & Achievers Scholarships to 133 students in Vermont.  Since 2000, Comcast has awarded more than $25 million in scholarships to approximately 25,000 students nationwide.
