The Connecticut Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Franchisees awarded a $1,000 scholarship to two students from Avon and Canton respectively. The award was a part of the 2010 Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Connecticut Franchisee Scholarship Program that provided a total of $100,000 in local scholarships to deserving high school seniors.
The franchisees honored the scholarship recipients at an awards ceremony held at State Capitol in Hartford. To cap off the event, Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz was on hand to deliver a keynote address to the students and award each a scholarship certificate.
This is the sixth year that Dunkinâ€™ Donuts has administered what has become a very successful scholarship program for Connecticut.
