Inside Chick-fil-A

This Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Scholar believes it’s not about what you get, but what you give.

A third-generation immigrant, Meghan Ziegler was always taught to work hard. She applied this lesson early on, when she struggled to learn to read in elementary school, and she continues to apply it today — both as a team member working at the Chick-fil-A® in Greenwood, Ind., and as a college student studying Marketing and Supply Chain Management.

“She’s goal-oriented and driven, but she’s patient and kind with others,” says Rick Johnson, Franchise Operator of Chick-fil-A of Greenwood, where Meghan works. “She does everything with excellence.”

Determined to earn her own way through college, Meghan has felt the pressure of focusing on school and maintaining good grades while also working to pay for tuition.

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, Rick surprised Meghan with the big news: She was one of this year’s $25,000 True Inspiration Scholarship winners.
