AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Two Auburn-area Taco Bell employees were award scholarships this week from the Taco Bell Foundation.

Tacala Companies, owner of both Auburn Taco Bell locations, presented the $25,000 Live Más scholarships to both employees.

VaSanti Brock, a one-year employee with the company, plans to use the scholarship funds to pursue her passions for agriculture and animal science at Tuskegee University.

Jailen Stockdale, a more than five-year Taco Bell employee, plans to use her scholarship to continue her passions of communications and philanthropy at Auburn University.

Both employees had to submit a two-minute video as a part of the application process describing their passions and how they planned to use them to ignite change.

This year, the Taco Bell Foundation awarded $8 million in Live Más Scholarships to 770 team members and fans, selecting from 8,000 applicants.
