Scholarship awards presented to seasonal associates

Laura Manhardt

Like many of our treasured guests, Laura grew up coming to Kings Island and enjoying the sweet treats (Blue Ice Cream, anyone?) and fun times the park has to offer. Now, as a Social Media Coordinator for Kings Island, Laura strives to share the fresh perspective and classic character that make our park unique and keep guests like her coming back year after year.

In addition to sharing the fun and excitement of working at a world-class amusement park, Kings Island offers its associates the opportunity to apply for a scholarship during the season they are working.

Following an application and interview process, our Scholarship Committee selects associates to receive varying scholarships. Associates are considered on a basis of academic work, community involvement, performance as a Kings Island associate, and their individual interview.

All selected associates have already been granted their awards, and are now looking forward to an evening celebration where they will find out their specific scholarship amounts and enjoy an official celebration of their award.

Congratulations to all selected recipients and their proud families!
