When you hear McDonalds, you probably think snack wraps and happy meals, but they are thinking about higher education.
For the past decade, they have been awarding McDonald's Educates Scholarships. Out of 600 applicants, this year 60 students from Virginia, DC and two other states are chosen.
The awards are $1500 or $5,000. Locally, Benjamin Aggrey of North Stafford High wins five grand. Others area winners are from Spotsylvania, Loudoun and Fauquier counties.
