Two local students were named regional winners of the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program.
The department store’s program honors young volunteers nationwide who have made a positive difference in their communities. Regional winners receive a $1,000 scholarship.
The Triangle winnerswere Courtney Pisano of Raleigh and Michael Southwick of Knightdale.
Courtney, 16, founded an organization called Children’s Lasting Power that hosts fundraisers to benefit children’s homes and causes. Courtney has raised more than $7,000 through CLP, including an event that earned a world record for the Largest Post-It Note Mosaic, according to a press release from Kohl’s.
Michael, 10, volunteers at Brown Bag Ministries during food drives and raised money to purchase toys for 100 children last Christmas.
