Eight recent Baton Rouge high school graduates received scholarships as part of the Church’s Scholars Program offered by Church’s Chicken.

Scholarship recipients included Chase Brouillette, Robert Sciambra and Connor Waits, all of Catholic High School; Terrell Haughton, of Episcopal High School; and Cayley Leblanc, Caroline Matthews, Sarah Langlois and Savannah Esteve, all of St. Joseph’s Academy.

They were among 225 high school seniors across 16 states who were selected to each receive $1,000 toward their college tuition.

Church’s Partners Foundation Inc. oversees the program, which recognizes students for their educational merit.
