A local girl was awarded one of 20 Ronald McDonald House scholarships last week.


Maria Carachure of Yadkinville was one of 20 Triad-area students to receive a $1,000 Ronald McDonald House Charities scholarship.


The Ronald McDonald House Charities recipients were chosen based on their leadership skills, academic success, community involvement, financial need and a personal essay describing how they intend to make a difference in society.


“Each year, I am impressed by the applicants who have demonstrated a commitment to furthering their education,” said Triad-area McDonald’s Owner/Operator Scott Lang. “It’s an honor to reward these 20 students with the Ronald McDonald House Charities scholarships. Through programs like this and other local education-based initiatives, McDonald’s owner/operators in the Triad are committed to supporting our students’ pursuits of their higher education goals.”


Hannah Forbes, one of the 20 Triad Ronald McDonald House Charities scholars to receive this year’s scholarship said, “I’m a proud recipient of the Ronald McDonald House Charities scholarship. I worked hard to earn this scholarship and I’m thankful to the educators who made my success possible. This fall I’m heading to UNC-Chapel Hill and I’m lovin’ it!”
