Max Jacobs and Sandra Reyes came to lunch on June 20, to accept their $1,000 scholarship checks and tell us about themselves and their future plans. Max will be attending the prestigious Kendall College culinary program this fall, and Sandra will be attending Oakton Community college and then Harper College to complete a Dental Hygienist program.


 Our third winner, George Hozan, who is enrolled in an automotive program at the Universal Technical Institute this fall, could not attend, but we look forward to meeting him and his family later this summer.

All of our applicants received glowing letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors and city officials. It was a challenge and a pleasure to choose three winners!
