Two (2) scholarships for $5,000 each. In partnership with the Magic Johnson Foundation, the Denny’s LA franchise restaurants will be offering scholarships in memory of Shami Sall, a loved and admired Senior Director of Operations of Denny’s. Shami had a helpful spirit and always lived by the creed “giving a hand up instead of a hand out.” This program will award $5000 scholarships to 2 deserving high school students who live in the LA market (U.S. citizen or legal temporary resident) and who have a life story that speaks to Shami’s mantra and personality. To apply for the scholarship, each student will be asked to submit a 300-word essay on his or her own life story. One of the requirements is to have two recommendation letters from a community leader, teacher or principal. Also required is a copy of the student’s GPA at the end of his or her junior year in high school. Because the student’s name and photograph will be used on the company’s website, the student will need to sign a release for that purpose.
