PHILADELPHIA PA – Boyertown Area Senior High School graduate Jack Albright was identified Thursday (Aug. 4, 2022) as among 20 winners of the 13th annual Dunkin’ Donuts Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program, the company announced. Two other recipients from Berks and Chester counties also were named.

Albright, from Perkiomenville, will be headed to Vanderbilt University with the benefit of Dunkin’s $5,000 funding. He plans to major in economics.

Competing students for the company’s academic prizes were selected from more than 1,350 applicants “based on their academic records, demonstrated leadership, and proven commitment to their school and local community.” The awards are targeted to those pursuing a full-time undergraduate degree at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school of their choice.

At Boyertown, Albright was a National Merit Scholarship Commended Student. He served as president of its National Honor Society, club president and regional secretary of Future Business Leaders of America, and as a link crew leader for Boyertown High freshman. He also founded the Boyertown Mental Health Awareness Group at the high school, Dunkin’ reported.

Outside school Albright captained a nationally ranked club soccer team, and worked as a founding board member on the club’s first player-led council. He additionally captained the Regional Olympic Development Soccer team, and volunteered at several TopSoccer locations.
