Penn Station East Coast Subs Announces Athlete Of The Year Winners
Franchisees Award Student Athletes Scholarships
May 31, 2019 // Franchising.com // MILFORD, OHIO - Penn Station East Coast Subs has announced the annual winners of its Athlete of the Year program in participating markets. Franchisees in these markets awarded a total of almost $10,000 in scholarships to the winning student athletes.
“Our Athlete of the Year program allows franchisees to give back to deserving students in their area,” said Craig Dunaway, president of Penn Station East Coast Subs. “As college becomes more and more expensive, these scholarships are a great way to reward students who excel both in the classroom and in athletics.”
Six markets participated in the Athlete of the Year program for the 2018-2019 school year: Lansing, Michigan; Nashville, Tennessee; Raleigh, North Carolina; South Bend, Indiana; Springfield, Illinois; and Columbus, Ohio.
The franchisees in those markets choose quarterly or monthly winners from submissions. Those winners receive a catered party, Athlete of the Month T-shirt, 100 free sandwich gift certificates to distribute throughout their school and a custom trophy and plaque. One winner is chosen from the monthly or quarterly winners to receive a scholarship at the end of the year.
