Morehead-Cain Scholar Scoops Opportunity

Establishing a thriving entrepreneur

Establishing a thriving entrepreneur

Morehead-Cain Scholar, Antonio McBroom ’08, began working for Ben and Jerry’s Scoop Shop when he arrived in Chapel Hill for his freshman year of college. After working for the company all four years, McBroom decided he wanted to make his mark as a young entrepreneur. Two days prior to his undergraduate graduation he bought his first franchise, the Chapel Hill Ben and Jerry’s Scoop Shop. 

McBroom credits all of his success to Carolina and the Morehead-Cain scholarship. 

“With the help of the Morehead, I was able to finish up college with no student debt. That became really, really important when I became an entrepreneur and bought my first business.”
