DI GRILLE DONATES SCHOLARSHIPS TO BE STUDENTS
Daniel Island Grille will present two scholarships to one male student and one female student from Bishop England High School for the 2018-2019 school year. The restaurant’s most popular burger has been renamed the “Battling Bishop Burger” and $1.00 from every sale of the burger goes to the Bishop England Scholarship Fund.
Last year, Daniel Island Grille was able to award two $1000 scholarships to one male and one female student.
“The community means a lot to Daniel Island Grille,” said General Manger Chris Perrine. “We want to support the local community and Bishop England High School is an important part of that community.”
Anyone can nominate a student from Bishop England by going to the Daniel Island Grille website. There is a form with details about the student’s graduation date, GPA, sports they have participated in, community involvement and the reason for the student’s nomination. One male and one female student will be chosen in May 2018. The scholarship can be used for textbooks, tuition, school supplies and more.
