Corn Boil awards 2014 scholarships

SUGAR GROVE—As part of Sugar Grove Corn Boil 2014 festivities, Sugar Grove Chamber President Steve Ekker on Friday announced the awarding of the 2014 Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce & Industry Scholarships.

Christine Crews received a $500 scholarship for a Graduating Female High School Senior and will attend Waubonsee Community College. Michael Deja received a $500 scholarship for a Graduating Male High School Senior and will attend Waubonsee Community College.

Both recipients were selected because of their understanding of the vital importance of community service as well as statements on their high school academic status, extra-curricular activities, and community service or community involvement.

The chamber offers these scholarships in an effort to recognize and support home grown potential. A generous donation from the Sugar Grove Fire Fighters Association also helped fund the 2014 scholarships.

The annual Scholarship Fair will take place on Thursday, Sept. 18, 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sugar Grove Township Community Building, 141 Main St. Learn from organizations and schools about their scholarships. Hear speakers regarding “Completing a FAFSA Form, Doing an Internet Search for Scholarships, and Writing a Scholarship Essay.” The event is free and open to the public for both students and parents.
