The program gives Papa John’s employees a chance to go to college for zero costs, with tuition, books, and other fees completely covered by the restaurant’s program. The employees don’t even have to be reimbursed, because the program pays for everything right off the bat.
It covers everything from Associates to Masters programs, as 60 Papa John’s employees have graduated college through the program since it began in 2019.
This isn’t the first time Shaq’s left his mark in Atlanta, as he invested in nine restaurants in the area a few years ago, just out of the goodness of his heart.
And if his classy move to the Papa John’s employees wasn’t enough, he also went and delivered pizzas to customers for awhile in Atlanta, and let them know how the customers can help employees go to college.
Keep doin’ you, Shaq.
When I text you 🍕 + 🚌 that means it’s time to get ready to go back to school. I’m riding around ATL today in this school bus to encourage @PapaJohns team members to go “Back to School” and earn their degree – at NO COST – through the Dough & Degrees Program#backtoschoolpic.twitter.com/qQkYnd40hm
