Cary-Grove High School Students Awarded Chamber Scholarships
The Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce awarded three $1,500 business scholarships to local students at Cary-Grove High School. 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 $60,000 in scholarship awards to local high school students who are pursuing 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.
The class of 2023 high school recipients each received a $1,500 scholarship for college. The scholarships were awarded to Natalie Brezina, John Harris, and Gabriel Hogan. Natalie will be attending the Louisiana State University in the fall and majoring in Education. She aspires to be an elementary school teacher. John will be attending Illinois State University and majoring in Marketing, and aspires earn his master's in Data Analytics and would eventually like to pursue a career designing marketing campaigns that are backed up by data. Gabriel will attend McHenry County College to study Automotive Technology and hopes to one day open his own auto shop. All the recipients were extremely involved during their four years at Cary-Grove High School, at both their school and within the community.
