The Couch Oil Cares Scholarship Program was established in 2015 to help defray the rising costs of higher education. Again this year, Couch Oil Company is teaming up with the Durham Bulls to award scholarships to six deserving students. The $1,000 scholarship is available to students who have been accepted into either a four-year or community college and reside in a 16-county area surrounding the Triangle.
Last year's winners were Laraib Awan from Wake Forest High School, Kiara De La Quezada from Garner Magnet High School, Ziyi Lin from Northern Vance High School, Richard Lopez-Hernandez from Franklinton High School, Matthew Morgan from Chatham Central High School and Azaria Woods from the NC School of Science and Mathematics.
"Couch Oil Company is pleased to be a sponsoring partner with the Durham Bulls this season," said Stephen Couch, President of Couch Oil Company. "To make this endeavor complete, we are excited to once again offer the Couch Oil Cares Scholarship to benefit families in our community."
Couch Oil Company, a family owned and operated Durham-based company, specializes in propane, gasoline, premium diesel, lubricants and tank cleaning.
The Bulls share in Couch Oil Company's vision to aid those with aspirations of attending college.
"Our flagship community programs focus on improving the lives of children in our community," said Durham Bulls Vice President - Baseball Operations Mike Birling. "We are thrilled to partner with Couch Oil on this endeavor to give students an opportunity to reach for higher education."
