Denny’s has partnered with Tom Joyner Foundation to raise funds to create scholarship for first generation college students.
“A legacy is defined by those who defy odds. You’ve accepted that someone must be first so that others can be next. So here you are, the first. Every obstacle you pushed through was for this moment. With your own mind in hands, you will influence a future for all. A path awaits. Own it. Learn from it. Leave a trail for others. So when you’re standing in your place of success, you can remember this moment, when you became the first”, says the voiceover in the 60-second spot featuring Elaina Patrick, a young college student awarded with the First Generation Scholarship by Denny’s, who’s helped by her parents to unpack her things in her college room.
The spot ends with the voiceover asking you to help support first generation college students’ road to success, inviting you to visit the website dennysfirstgen.com.
