“To me, a company as huge as Wingstop, we’ve seen so much success doing what we’re doing, let’s take it to the next level,” said Rozay on the scholarship. “Let’s make ourselves that much more a part of the community…We see the drop out rates. We know what’s going on. So what’s the biggest thing that we could do? Wingstop as a company came together and put together an urban scholarship that’s for the underprivileged, that’s educationally based. That’s me talking to my audience. We need to hear this, and we need to bring all these ideas and concepts to the table and start as soon as possible.”
This scholarship will also be awarded to Wingstop employees if applicable, and it’s all for the purpose of pursuing higher education. Grants will also be awarded to mentoring and education groups in order to lessen the amount of school dropouts.
Ross owns several Wingstop franchises throughout the country, and we’re glad he’s teaming up with the company for something extremely important. Props.
