Comcast Celebrates Tennessee's Leaders & Achievers

Posted by Jamie Holland on June 18, 2013

In anticipation of this year's event on Thursday, I wanted to do a quick blog post on one of my favorite activities from the past year-- Comcast's Leaders & Achievers Scholarship Program!  The program provides $1,000 scholarships to selected students who have been recognized as the best and the brightest high-school seniors in their communities.  Additionally, last year in Nashville, they gave away two $5,000 scholarships and multiple brand new laptop computers!  What's even better than witnessing a student's hard work being paid off, is listening to these remarkable students as they discuss their future plans.  I could go on about how wonderful I think this program is, but I think the video below says it all.

Here are a few of the highlights from last year's Leaders and Achievers event here in Nashville, TN held at the Adventure Science Center.


This year's event will be held on Thursday, June 20th at 11:30 a.m. at the Tennessee State Capitol, with Tennessee's Secretary of State, Tre Hargett, serving as the special guest speaker.  For more information, contact Sara Jo Houghland at or call (615) 231-7704.

Stay tuned, as I'll be sure to post all the wonderful details from the event soon after the event.
