This is Scott.
He was just chosen as the recipient for our Donald & Clare Burns Hospitality Scholarship. This $1500 Scholarship is offered every year to someone on our team who work at Moe’s Pizza and Cilantro and Chive – to anyone attending post-secondary education with hospitality at their core.
Scott has overcome incredible obstacles to get to where he is today, and we have been very fortunate to have him on our team here at Cilantro and Chive for the better part of the last 4 years. To see people grow, change, evolve, and want more for themselves, and especially go get an education is a big reason why we do what we do.
I’m Jason Burns, the General Manager at Cilantro and Chive, and the man behind the scenes on social media. My Mom and Dad pledged their lives to serving their community, and everyone that they knew were lucky to have them impact their lives in a positive way. They are the reason why I got into the hospitality industry to begin with and I am extremely proud to have Scott honor their memory.
We are so proud that Rieley and Kim are continuing the scholarship this year despite all of the challenges with this pandemic. Because encouraging our team to achieve more for themselves and impact this community is a legacy my family and all of us here are extremely proud of – and important now more than ever.
THANK YOU to all of our amazing scholarship submissions, and all the best to our team for their futures!
