Metropolitan Community College—Maple Woods student Wyatt Stone, center, of Kansas City North is the first recipient of a $2,000 scholarship from the Zaxby’s restaurants in Gladstone and Liberty. Nick Navarro, left, owner of the two locations, presented a ceremonial check to Stone along with Larry Rideaux Jr., president of MCC—Maple Woods. Stone, who is studying business at MCC, has been a kitchen team member at the Zaxby’s in Gladstone since July 2019. “We plan to offer more scholarships to the students who work at our locations,” Navarro said. “Wyatt is our first, and we are happy to help him achieve his goals.” The scholarship is available to employees who’ve worked at least 1,500 hours or about 1.5 years of part-time work, Navarro added.
