Amanda Rush Scholarship Fund for Future Leaders
This scholarship will honor and celebrate Amanda Rush by supporting central Ohio restaurant employees, or students going to school for restaurant management or hospitality, that reflect the hard work, talent, and heart for hospitality that were the hallmarks of Amanda's leadership.

Amanda Rush was a White Castle General Manager who loved her customers, loved her team and loved her family.  Amanda started with White Castle when she was just 16 years old, and with hard work, talent and a heart for hospitality, she was named a White Castle General Manager in the Columbus region in 2018.  Throughout her career, Amanda was a perfect example of living the White Castle vision to “feed the souls of craver generations everywhere”.  She did this through the encouragement and coaching she provided her team, the way she made every customer feel like they were the most important person in the world, and making anyone who visited the restaurant feel like “her Castle” was “their Castle”.  Amanda was taken  from us suddenly by an unexplainable act of violence.  The impact she made on so many will live on as far as the eye can see.
