ORADELL, NJ, Aug 19, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Huntington Learning Center announced the winner of its College
Scholarship Sweepstakes this week, which ended on June 30, 2013.
Taryn Candy of Dresher, Pa. received a $500 scholarship toward future
college tuition and fees. Candy is a senior at Upper Dublin High
School and is interested in studying business at Pennsylvania State
"We were excited to learn that Taryn had won this scholarship," said
Robyn Candy, Taryn's mother. "It means a lot to get a little help
"Huntington is a proud supporter of high school students who strive
to attend college, and we are excited to assist Taryn with her
college tuition," said Darryl Benjamin, Center Director of the
Abington Huntington Learning Center. "This scholarship is a great
boost for any student heading off to college. We also feel proud that
many of our exam prep students receive scholarships after they go
through Huntington's program and increase their SAT or ACT scores."
The Abington Huntington Learning Center opened more than 30 years ago
and is one of Huntington's oldest centers. According to Benjamin, who
has owned the center since 2005, approximately 25 percent of the
center's students come from educator families. The center's average
SAT score increase for students who complete their exam prep program
is 279 points. "In a short amount of time, we are able to enhance
students' skills -- not only on the SAT or ACT, but in the classroom.
Our exam prep students improve their test-taking abilities overall."
Huntington Learning Center locations across the country participated
in Huntington's College Scholarship Sweepstakes. High school students
ages 14 and older are eligible to enter, as are parents, grandparents
and friends of high school students attending college after
graduation. Entries are submitted via text message and Huntington
awards one $500 scholarship every quarter.
