SpartanNash has announced the 25 recipients of its Our Family 2023 Scholarship Program, supporting students making a positive difference in their communities.
Introduced in April, the program invited students who live in the same states served by SpartanNash-distributed grocery stores to apply for a $2,000 scholarship. The awards may be used toward higher education, including two- and four-year universities, trade schools or secondary education programs.
The winners were chosen based on multiple short essays showcasing community engagement through extracurricular activities, charity work and other good deeds. To view the full list of recipients, click here.
Developed in 1904, Our Family is the flagship private brand distributed exclusively by SpartanNash.
“As a company rooted in the neighborhoods we serve through our own retail stores and the independent retailers we supply, we are proud to recognize these student leaders who are championing change on a local level,” said Amy McClellan, EVP and chief customer officer.
“These individuals have demonstrated a commitment to serving the communities we love, helping make them better places to live, play and grow. Their stories inspire us, and we look forward to seeing how their leadership skills continue to grow with the support of these financial scholarships.”
Our Family retailer Jason Nilssen of Nilssen’s Foods noted that communities coming together is “vital to helping set up our next generation for success.”
“We are thrilled to celebrate these amazing student leaders who are working hard to serve their neighbors in meaningful ways,” he said.
