RoNetco Supermarkets, Inc., operators of ShopRite supermarkets in Sussex, Morris, and Warren counties, announced the scholarship winners for the 2019-2020 academic school year. Committed to continuing education, RoNetco provides $22,000 in scholarships every year to associates and children and grandchildren of associates from the seven ShopRite supermarkets and their corporate office. Employing over 1,600 people, RoNetco is dedicated to providing opportunities for associates to pursue a post high school education by not only offering scholarships, but by encouraging staff members to take advantage of their generous tuition reimbursement program and discounted tuition with participating colleges and universities.

Offering opportunities for students to learn and earn while working at RoNetco is demonstrated through the Summer Internship Program for rising college juniors and seniors, as well as workshops, seminars, and an in-house development program that helps to instill and cultivate competencies and leadership skills.

RoNetco currently owns seven ShopRite locations in Netcong, Byram, Flanders, Newton, Mansfield, Succasunna, and Franklin. ShopRite of Sparta will be their eighth location, opening fall 2019, and will enhance their associate’s opportunities for growth, development, and advancement within the company.
