(Cary, IL – 5/26/2022) The Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce recently awarded two $2,000 business scholarships to local students at the 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 $52,000 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 2022 high school recipients each received a $2,000 scholarship for college. The scholarships were awarded to Lillian Garski and Ryan Huellen. Lillian will be attending the University of Illinois in the fall and majoring in Marketing. She aspires to work in a marketing department of a business based in Chicago and become involved in the community. Ryan will be attending Iowa State University and majoring in Computer Science and aspires to open his own business.
