Andrew Mitchell, Lee’s Summit High School, and Akilah Wright, Lee’s Summit North High School, both recently earned $1,000 scholarships as part of the Comcast Foundation Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program.  The award is a one-time scholarship granted to high school seniors for their community service, academic performance and leadership skills.

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who strive to achieve their full potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
