Eyes on Houston: McDonald's scholarships

HOUSTON – For 25 years, McDonald's, the Black McDonald's Operators Association and the Ronald McDonald Children's Charity funds have been giving $2,000 scholarships to African-American students that are graduating high school. 

The students write an essay and a committee reviews and decides the recipients.

Today they gave out 25 scholarships. They also give scholarships to Hispanic and Asian students at similar luncheons.

You can tell by the smiles, these students appreciate the helping hand.
