Two employees of the Northlake Festival Chick-fil-A have won the company's Leadership Scholarship.
The scholarship, worth $1,000 each, is awarded to employees who go above and beyond--both behind the counter and at their desks at school.
Both winners are college students who have been Chick-fil-A employees for more than four years. Nick Pallas is studying finance at Georgia State University and is in the Class of 2014. Lauren Spratte is majoring in marketing at the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business with a targeted graduation date of next spring.
Now that Pallas and Spratte have won this scholarship, they are also in the running for another $1,000 scholarship, the S. Truett Cathy Scholarship Award.
Three employees of this location have won the Leadership Scholarship since it opened in May 2011. The scholarship has been awarded to employees since 1973, counting more than 30,000 winners and $30.5 million in scholarship money.
