McDonald's to Present $25,000 in Scholarships to Area High School Students Program Also Honors Students' Most Influential Teachers



    WASHINGTON, March 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The McDonald's Family Restaurants of
 the Greater Washington, DC area will honor 25 outstanding high school seniors
 and 25 of their most influential teachers on March 27, 2003, during the Ray A.
 Kroc Student/Teacher Achievement Awards Ceremony.  In its 17th year, the
 scholarship dinner takes place at the Four Points Sheraton in Hagerstown, Md.,
 and honors students and their teachers from Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland
 and the District of Columbia.
     Established in 1984 in honor of McDonald's founder, Ray A. Kroc, this
 program recognizes high school seniors for all-round excellence in the areas
 of citizenship, leadership, scholarship and community service.  Each student
 was asked to compose an essay on the high school teacher who has inspired him
 or her the most.  The students were nominated by their high school and then
 selected by a committee of McDonald's representatives.
     "These students have excelled in their academic, extra-curricular and
 civic pursuits and McDonald's is proud to honor them along with the dedicated
 teachers who have inspired them to achieve their goals," said Al Boxley,
 President of the McDonald's Greater Washington, DC Cooperative of Owners.
 "The Ray A. Kroc Scholarship program is a great example of McDonald's
 continued commitment to youth and educations in the communities in which we do
 business."
     In its seventeenth year locally, the Ray A. Kroc Student/Teacher
 Achievement Awards program has provided more than $400,000 in scholarships to
 outstanding high school seniors in the Greater Washington, DC metropolitan
 area.
     McDonald's is the world's leading foodservice retailer, with more than
 30,000 restaurants serving nearly 45 million people each day in 121 countries.
 There are over 350 McDonald's restaurants in the Greater Washington, D.C.
