Stephenson HS grad receives Chick-fil-A scholarship
LITHONIA, GA (CBS46) -
JeKayla Claxton, Stone Mountain resident and 2012 Stephenson High School graduate, has been selected from among more than 1,500 candidates from across the country to receive the 2013 S. Truett Cathy Scholar Award, a scholarship named for Chick-fil-A's founder and given to only 25 recipients a year.
Cathy, along with a blue-ribbon panel of Atlanta community leaders, selected Claxton based on her personal excellence in academics, community service and leadership.
She was surprised by family and friends with a ceremony Saturday at the Lithonia Chick-fil-A, where she has worked for more than five years.
Claxton attends The University of Georgia.
