Cary-Grove High School Students Awarded Chamber Scholarships

Cary-Grove High School Students Awarded Chamber Scholarships
(Cary, IL – 5/18/2021) 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 $48,000 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 2021 high school recipients each received a $2,000 scholarship for college. The scholarships were awarded to Sophia Tronolone and Abigail Williams.  Sophia will be attending the DePaul University in the fall and majoring in Finance and Accounting.  She plans to take advantage of the opportunities going to school in Chicago has to offer and someday work in business helping others.  Abigail will be attending Oregon State University and will double major in Business Administration and Design and Innovation Management and aspires to be an entrepreneur.   Both students were extremely involved during their four years at Cary-Grove High School both at the school and within their communities.
