SONIC awards 77 scholarships

A total of 77 Central Oklahoma SONIC Drive-In crew members have been awarded $1,000 Limeades for Learning College Scholarships by the Central Oklahoma SONIC Co-op.

The SONIC employees, hailing from Alva to Yukon, will receive tickets for and be recognized during the Oklahoma City Redhawks home game on Tuesday, June 5. All of the scholarship recipients will be enrolled in a two or four-year university, college or career technology school as a part-time or full-time student for the 2012-2013 academic year.

“Our Central Oklahoma drive-ins are full of passionate and bright young men and women who admirably balance their academic pursuits with making customers happy at the drive-in,” said Margie Rosenthal, Oklahoma City market leader for Sonic Corp. “SONIC supports all of its crew members and looks to foster opportunities for growth both inside and outside the company.”

SONIC created the Limeades for Learning scholarship fund to encourage the pursuit of continuing education and to provide SONIC employees with financial aid for the costs of advanced educational development. SONIC believes supporting education contributes to the development of community-oriented individuals who make a positive impact on society.

The scholarships have been awarded by the Central Oklahoma SONIC Co-op on an annual basis since 1994.
