Dion’s is committed to supporting youth development within the community and our stores. We have a multitude of efforts that focus on the community, which can be found here. In addition, the Dion’s Scholarship was created to support the development of youth within our stores by providing existing employees with scholarship opportunities to help further their future education.
Employees who are high school seniors or students currently enrolled in college were invited to apply for scholarships provided by Dion’s by submitting a written application, including an essay and letter of recommendation, for consideration. More than 45 applications were received in 2022. After the initial review process, some applicants were also invited to meet with The Dion’s Scholarship Board for an interview.
The 2022 scholarship recipients were: Kayann Cordova, Nneoma Magnus-Nwakuna, Julia Moberly, Maisie O’Neill, Rebekah Payne, Madeline Rivera and Alexander White.
