Local High School Students Win Chamber Scholarships
The Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce recently awarded two $1,000 business scholarships to local students. The awards are intended to encourage area students to pursue college interests that might impact local business. Over the years the Chamber has given away more than $30,000 in scholarship awards to local high school students who are pursing business related studies. The chamber is proud to make this investment in our local youth who may someday become future business professionals and owners right in our community. We specifically look for students that may want to bring their skills back to the Cary Grove area.
This year’s recipients of $1,000 scholarships each are Jane Elder and Lindsay Light. Jane Elder is now a graduate of Marian Central High School. She participated in National Honor Society, Key Club, Model U.N. and Pit Orchestra. Her leadership experience is outstanding. In the fall, she will head to the University of Notre Dame. Our second winner, Lindsay Light just graduated from Cary-Grove High School. She played soccer, volunteered and participated in leadership training. In the fall, she will head to University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
Each spring the Cary Grove Chamber awards scholarship monies to local high school students. A full list of award winners throughout the years can be found on the Chamber website. The Chamber’s Scholarship Fund is supported through generous donations from local businesses. True Value Manufacturing is a major contributor of the Scholarship Fund. The Chamber also makes contributions from the proceeds from Cary Cruise Nights and other activities. The Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce is the premier business alliance in the Cary Grove Area. With our 500 members, the Chamber is dedicated to the growth and development of the business community and to improving the quality of life for those who live and work in the Cary Grove Area. The chamber scholarship committee members included; Chamber President Dave Evans of Evans Carpet Cleaning Plus, Gene Brickhouse of True Value Manufacturing, and Dorothy Miller of Lake Julian.
