Baby Harland Rose just won big from KFC because of her name.

It’s all part of a KFC contest, to name a baby after Colonel Sanders in honor of what would have been his 128th birthday.

This family was the first to name their newborn Harland, specifically after the colonel’s first name. The prize was $11,000 for her college fund.

KFC says, “We hope that this birthday celebration honors the Colonel and encourages the next generation of people aspiring to live the American dream.”
