Cary-Grove Area Chamber Business Scholarships
2017 Cary-Grove Chamber Business Scholarship Winner Announced
The Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce recently awarded two $1,000 business scholarships to local students at Honors Night on Wednesday, May 17. 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 $33,000 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 the $1,000 scholarships each are Jack Bressett and Sofia Kroll. Jack will be attending Cornell University in the fall and studying business and mathematics with hopes of owning his own non-profit company dedicated to hospice care. Sofia will be attending DePaul University and majoring in business administration and community service. Both students were extremely involved during their four years at Cary-Grove High both at the school and within their communities.
Thank you to the Cary-Grove Chamber Scholarship Committee; Phil Horn of Phil Horn the State Farm Agency, Jason Myers of Athletico, Sue Jensen of Periwinkle Florist and Sumish Parikh of Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin Robbins.
