Inside Chick-fil-A

This Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Scholar does it all

Between working full-time and going to school full-time, Chick-fil-A® team member Abby LaFave also volunteers as a cheerleading coach for a local non-profit organization — and the college sophomore still managed to stay on the Dean’s List during her freshman year.

“She’s an amazing individual,” says Raymond Skelton, Franchise Operator of Chick-fil-A Market Street in Wilmington, N.C., where Abby works. “I’ve often wondered, how does she do all of this?”

Thanks to what she’s learned in her job at Chick-fil-A Market Street, Abby wants to be a business owner one day. But, with two other siblings currently in college, she struggled to figure out how she and her family would afford her second year of school this Fall.

Enter Chick-fil-A’s Remarkable Futures scholarships. Since 1973, Chick-fil-A has been awarding scholarships to team members to help them pursue their dreams of higher education. Each year, eligible team members can apply to receive a Leadership Scholarship of $2,500 based on their leadership, academic achievement and community involvement. Twelve outstanding team members who have these three qualities plus a demonstrated financial need are awarded a True Inspiration Scholarship — totaling up to $25,000.

This past May, Raymond surprised Abby with the big news: She was one of this year’s $25,000 True Inspiration Scholarship winners.

Watch the video to see how Abby reacted to receiving this life-changing news. (Hint: Grab a tissue!)

And, be on the lookout for the great things this True Inspiration Scholar is going to do. A natural leader whose tenacity inspires everyone she meets, we know Abby LaFave is on her way to creating a #remarkablefuture.
