Inside Chick-fil-A

This Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Scholar has a heart for helping others

Growing up the youngest of six kids to a single mom, money was always tight in Cassandra Jobman’s family. She never thought she’d be able to go to college.

She worked hard anyway, earning top marks in school and graduating in the top 10 of her high school class. When she got accepted to the University of Pennsylvania, she couldn’t wait to continue her education and pursue a degree in social work. She wanted to dedicate her life to helping others.

But — even with working two jobs to save money — she wasn’t sure how she’d pay for college.

Enter the Chick-fil-A® Remarkable Futures scholarship. 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, Roger Clark, Franchise Operator at the Chick-fil-A in Mesquite, Tex., surprised Cassandra with the big news: She was one of this year’s $25,000 True Inspiration Scholarship winners.

Watch the video to see how Cassandra 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. With a heart for people, and now her dream of a college education becoming a reality, we know Cassandra Jobman is on her way to creating a #remarkablefuture.
