The Dunkin’ Community Cruiser made a stop in Berks County Thursday afternoon to honor Berks Catholic graduate Ethan Kraycik, local recipient of the eleventh annual Dunkin’ Regional Scholarship Program.

Out of 1,500 applicants, Dunkin’ and Scholarship America selected 25 students Regionally, to receive an academic scholarship to an accredited two or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school of their choice for fall 2020.

Dunkin’ awarded a total of $50,000 to the 25 recipients who were selected based on their academic records, demonstrated leadership skills, and overall commitment to their schools and local communities.

“I think it’s really cool for Dunkin’ to host an event like this when everyone is social distancing, this is a bigger event than I thought it was going to be” said Ethan.

“It’s great to be able to have money for college and help me purse my first year.”

To celebrate the scholarship, Dunkin’ hosted an Iced Coffee break at the Kraycik residence in Amity Township for family, friends, and neighbors.

Dunkin’ representatives provided Ethan a certificate of achievement and a special gift at the event. Ethan will be attending Drexel University in the Fall.

Since its inception in 2009, Dunkin’ has awarded more than $450,000 in scholarships to 275 outstanding high school seniors and college students.
