The Turner Hill Road Chick-fil-A is celebrating the accomplishments of 14 of its graduating high school seniors. 

Of the 14 who have worked for Chick-fil-A, 11 of the students are recipients of the 2018 Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship. The scholarships total $27,500. Each winner received $2,500 for their leadership, influence in the community and outstanding accomplishments academically.

“It is our pleasure to offer our congratulations to the Class of 2018. The Chick-fil-A team members receiving the scholarships have played a very important and indispensable role in the restaurant and the community,” said Sam L. West, owner/operator. 

The students, West said, have made a positive difference in the lives of others, while building a legacy for future generations. They have been shining lights in their schools, achieving academic success at every level.  

“We are so proud they are a part of the Chick-fil-A Family,” said West and his wife, Diann. “Many of the students have been a part of the Chick-fil-A family for over three years, and it has been an honor to have them apart of the Chick-fil-A family and team. Their generosity, dedication, and hard work has paid off, as each will be attending prestigious universities in the fall.”
