Cary-Grove High School Students Awarded the 2024 Chamber Scholarships

Cary-Grove High School Students Awarded Chamber Scholarships

(Cary, IL – 5/16/2024) The Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce awarded two $2,000 business scholarships to 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 $65,000 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 2024 high school recipients each received a $2,000 scholarship for college. The scholarships were awarded to William Barcy and Sarah Barklow. William will be attending the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne in the fall and majoring in Finance. Will aspires to be an personal wealth manager and aspires to one day be a CEO or CFO of a financial firm or start his own practice. Sarah will be attending Iowa State University and majoring in Advertising, and aspires to lead a creative team at an advertising firm, or a marketing department for a company or non-profit, and maybe one day having her digital marketing business.

Will and Sarah were extremely involved during their four years at Cary-Grove High School, at both their school and within the community.
