Woodland CA - Local students Gerald Shearman and Anthony Wong have each been awarded the Eugene and Joan Stille Educational Scholarship. Shearman (a Nugget Markets associate for eight years), and Wong (his mother is a Nugget Markets associate in Elk Grove) will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to further their studies.
“We’re so proud of Gerald and Anthony,” says Eric Stille, president and CEO of Nugget Markets, Inc. “These hardworking gentlemen, with their strong work ethic and commitment to their education, will no doubt be successful in their chosen career paths.”
Shearman is currently working on a bachelor’s degree in biblical and theological studies, and he plans to go into church ministry. Future goals include acquiring his doctorate in the same field. A graduate of John F. Kennedy High School in Sacramento, Wong will attend UC Berkeley with plans to major in economics and ultimately attend graduate school.
Two Eugene and Joan Stille Educational Scholarships ($1,000 each) are available to high school seniors or undergraduate students employed by Nugget Markets, Food 4 Less or Fork Lift by Nugget Markets or to a student who is a dependent of an associate. Dependents of Nugget Markets, Food 4 Less or Fork Lift executives, store directors and corporate directors are not eligible and only one recipient per family is awarded.
