The Covington News - - School Beat -

Dmitriy Se­menikhin of Cov­ing­ton was awarded a Chick- fil- A na­tional Lead­er­ship Schol­ar­ship.

Se­menikhin re­ceived the schol­ar­ship from his Chick­fil- A fran­chise op­er­a­tor at the New­ton Plaza restau­rant in Cov­ing­ton.

He is the 30th team mem­ber from the Cov­ing­ton lo­ca­tion to re­ceive the award and is study­ing broad­cast jour­nal­ism at Ge­or­gia Mil­i­tary Col­lege.

“ Se­menikhin joins a dis­tin­guished group of more than 23,000 Chick- fil- A team mem­bers who have re­ceived the schol­ar­ship as they pur­sue their ed­u­ca­tional goals,” said Tracy Roper, Cov­ing­ton Chick- fil- A owner. “ We are very proud of his ac­com­plish­ment and ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­am­ple he is set­ting for the more than 50,000 Chick- filA team mem­bers who might also be in­spired to reach higher goals.”

In 1973, Chick- fil- A founder Truett Cathy es­tab­lished the schol­ar­ship pro­gram.

Since that time, more than $ 6.4 mil­lion has been awarded to Ge­or­gia stu­dents and $ 23 mil­lion na­tion­wide.
