Fast-growing casual brand selects inaugural student-employee to receive tuition aide

Wingers Announces Recipient of First-Annual Hospitality ScholarshipSalt Lake City, UT  (RestaurantNews.com)  Wingers Restaurant & Alehouse announced today the recipient of its first-annual Wingers Hospitality Scholarship – Elizabeth Hunt!

Hunt, a freshman at Weber State University, is the inaugural recipient of the $2,500 scholarship, awarded to an exemplary hourly Wingers employee currently enrolled in school. Hunt began working for the Kaysville Wingers in July 2019 and quickly became one of the most versatile, hardworking team members at the location. Hunt currently works at the Bountiful Wingers location and is the inspiration behind the Wingers Hospitality Scholarship.

“Elizabeth is a total team player and someone that comes into work every day with the best attitude,” said Wingers Chief Operating Officer Brandon Howard. “When we heard that Elizabeth was interested in college but needed to save money for tuition, we wanted to create a scholarship for deserving employees like her to help further their development and education. Elizabeth is the perfect inaugural recipient, and we are so excited for her to be able to pursue her interests in school.”

Hunt is currently enrolled in medical courses with the intention of becoming a nurse or veterinarian. She will receive the scholarship for the 2021-2022 school year and will be able to apply in January to receive it for the 2022-2023 school year as well.

Along with Hunt, any other Wingers hourly employees currently enrolled in school can apply for the scholarship going forward. Applications will be open from January to February, with the decision announced in March of each year.
