The 2005 McDonald’s Scholarship winners attended a luncheon in their honor on May 10th.
For the second year, WJZY UPN 46 sponsored the McDonald’s Scholarship Luncheon honoring minority students who have excelled in their senior year of high school. The event took place on Tuesday, May 10, 2005 at the Hilton Hotel University in Charlotte.
Around 30 scholarships are presented each year. Recipients must be of African-American descent and eligible to attend a two- or four-year college for the 2005-2006 school year. Students are chosen based on character, community service, leadership and academic excellence.
Each year WJZY UPN46 produces and airs Public Service Announcements advising viewers for the McDonald’s Minority Scholarship. The station is recognized as a “Media Sponsor” at the annual luncheon.
