Carl’s Jr Helping One Of Its Younger Workers With $10K For College

A Yucca Valley High School senior is on her way to Orange Coast College in the Fall.


And she is getting 10-thousand dollars from her employer, Carl’s Jr in Yucca Valley.


Michaela Cruz is from Landers California. She will graduate from Yucca Valley High School this month.


She is an active member of the National Honor Society and volunteers with businesses in the High Desert.  


Michaela’s  mother has raised 5 kids as a single mother, and that has inspired Michaela to be the first in her family to go to college.


She plans to study higher education and an allied health degree.


Carl’s Jr has picked Michaela as one of its ten 2024 Carl N and Margaret Karcher Founder’s Scholarship recipients.
