CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - The Kohl’s Department Stores’ Kohl’s Cares® Scholarship Program has awarded more than 200 regional-level winners with $1,000 scholarships toward post-secondary education.
Two young people from the Clermont County-area were chosen from more than 35,000 nominees nationwide for positively impacting their community.
Clermont County recipients of $1,000 scholarships are:
· Destiny Graves, 11, Batavia – For the past four years, Destiny has volunteered with the Bethany House of Cincinnati to sort and organize used clothing and toys for distribution to families over the holiday season and has recruited many of her classmates to help people who are less fortunate.
· Phil Reinhart, 18, Milford – Phil founded Learn the Life, an annual weeklong program at his school to raise student awareness of hunger, disease and education struggles faced by people in Tanzania, Africa and has also raised more than $5,500 for nonprofits that benefit the people of Africa.
Each regional-level winner qualifies for one of Kohl’s ten national scholarships, which will be announced at the end of July. National winners will each receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
In total, Kohl’s will recognize more than 2,200 young volunteers with more than $420,000 in scholarships and prizes this year.
