LANSING, Mich., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The Comcast Foundation, founded
in 1999 to provide charitable support to its local communities and to empower
and enrich lives, is awarding 86 Michigan high school seniors scholarships
through its annual Leaders and Achievers^® Scholarship Program. The program,
one of the Comcast Foundation's signature community investment programs,
recognizes students' leadership skills, academic achievement and commitment to
community service.

WILX-TV evening anchor Lauren Evans and Comcast Regional Senior Vice President
Tim Collins co-hosted an event yesterday for the scholarship recipients and
their family members at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing to recognize the
students for their accomplishments. One student, Madison Kintigh of Jackson
Christian High School in Concord received special recognition and was awarded
an additional $7,000 scholarship.

"I am proud to be able to recognize the Leaders and Achievers scholarship
winners and support Comcast's efforts to have a direct and positive impact on
these young people's dreams of higher education," said keynote speaker
Katherine Cockrel, Director of Strategic Communications, Ignition Media Group.
"Whether academically or through community service, these students understand
the importance of making their mark and are on the right path to becoming
tomorrow's future leaders."

"Comcast has a vested interest in providing our youth with opportunities to
excel and succeed in a highly competitive, higher education landscape and job
market," said Tim Collins. "We view these young men and women as potential
future Comcast employees, and we wish them much success and commend them for
their outstanding achievements."

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers^® Scholarship Program provides $1,000
scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, who are
catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their
schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students. The philosophy
behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for
the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also
demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on
civic involvement by the business community. To date, Comcast has awarded
nearly $19 million to nearly 19,000 Leaders and Achievers Scholarship winners.

"Each year, we are excited to provide scholarships for these talented
students," said Charisse R. Lillie, President of the Comcast Foundation and
Vice President, Community Investment of Comcast Corporation. "Comcast seeks
students who demonstrate leadership abilities in school activities and who
reflect a strong commitment to community service. These students are our
future leaders, and we hope these scholarships will help to power their dreams
