WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) – Braum’s and Dr Pepper partner each year to award thousands of dollars to students to help defray tuition costs. This year, nearly $50,000 will go to winners in four states.
Braum’s Announces Winners of Braum’s Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway for 2022 Contest. In Texas, six customers won a $1,000 prize, as well as two employees.
Burkburnett’s Aasta Shaw received her award from Braum’s Burkburnett Manager Dawnelle Cummins and District Manager Chad Hale.
Shaw holds a bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory science, but has wanted to go back to school for several years.
“I am so grateful to have won this award so I can further my education. I am inspired by my faith in Christ, my family and all the wonderful people in my life,” Shaw said.
Each year, the contest offers the chance to win one of 20 $1,000 tuition prizes or a $23,000 grand prize. Braum employees are also eligible to win one of six employee tuition prizes of $1,000.
The contest takes place every year and prizes are awarded the following year after all contestants have been notified and their information has been verified. The 2022 giveaway was the ninth year that Braum’s and Dr Pepper have partnered to present class awards.
“This partnership is a wonderful way for Braum’s to give back to our communities,” said Drew Braum, President and CEO. “It also helps our employees who are still in school or have children in school.”
The Dr Pepper tuition award covers post-secondary tuition or professional fees, tuition, books, supplies, equipment, related educational expenses, or on-campus room and board. Winners can also use the tuition award to pay off student loans for eligible costs.
