In July, Kohl’s announced the winners of Kohl’s Cares scholarships for 2012. Kohl’s, a favorite of Columbia thrifty shoppers, has once again met and exceeded its commitment to kids. We, as frequent customers of Kohl’s sales and specials, are honored to have been a small part of this effort. My own two boys, along with some of your children and grandchildren, were among over 35,000 entered. Congratulations to the ten very special young people who were chosen and a huge Thank You to Kohl’s!
These exceptional youth, ranging in age from six to eighteen, are the recipients of a total of $10,000 in scholarships each for post-secondary education. In addition to the scholarships, Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization of each winner’s choice. At a time when student loan debt has surpassed $1 trillion, Kohl’s is helping support the futures of these ten outstanding youth.
“Kohl’s is honored to have the opportunity to recognize and thank the ten Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program national winners for their inspiring efforts to improve the lives of others,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “Whether it is sending care packages to military personnel or campaigning for the use of recycled products at fast food restaurants, these children stand as an example to us all of how generosity, devotion and initiative can change the world. Kohl’s is privileged to support the futures of these children who we are confident will continue to improve countless lives through their volunteer work.”
