Trevor Pelock, of the Homewood Culver’s restaurant, earlier this year received a $1,000 scholarship from Culver’s VIP Scholarship Fund to pursue his educational goals.
“Trevor has been a Culver’s team member for six years,” Jack Rush, owner of Culver’s of Homewood, said in a press release. “We’re so proud he is being recognized for his outstanding commitment to Culver’s and their dedication to continuing his education.”
Pelock attended Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights.
Through the generosity of Culver’s franchise partners, supplier partners and friends of Culver’s, and Culver’s co-founder and the fund’s executive director, Lea Culver, the restaurant has been able to help team members take positive steps toward their goals of earning a college or technical school degree since 1993, according to the release.
Members submit applications for funding, and judging teams are made up of supplier partners and educators.
Since 1993, Culver’s has invested more than $2 million in student scholarships to more than 2,000 team members, the release said.
