In honor of its 90th anniversary, Hy-Vee said it would be awarding $90,000 in college scholarships to students in eight states.
Each of the $1,000 scholarships were awarded to students who work at Hy-Vee or have a parent who does. High school students selected for this year’s scholarship had an average GPA of 3.98 and an average ACT score of 29. Their average years of service working for Hy-Vee was 1.81 years. For the college scholarship recipients, the average GPA was 3.81 and the average years of service was 3.03 years. Since 1969, Hy-Vee has awarded more than $2.5 million in scholarships.
“For more than 50 years, we have awarded scholarships to students who are connected to Hy-Vee and have demonstrated outstanding academic achievements,” said Jess Enos, Hy-Vee’s VP of training and education. “The Hy-Vee Foundation Scholarship program allows us to help young students achieve their educational goals.”
