Friday evening, July 28, 2017, as a part of the Sugar Grove Corn Boil opening ceremony, Steve Ekker, Chamber Director announced the awarding of the 2017 Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce & Industry Scholarships. Family, neighbors, and friends, joined Steve and chamber representatives for the presentation in front of the main stage.
Austin Berens and Natalie Barnhart each received a $500.00 Scholarship for a graduating male and female high school senior. This fall, Austin will attend the University of Iowa and Natalie will attend Waubonsee Community College. The 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 Sugar Grove Chamber offers these scholarships in an effort to recognize and support home grown potential.
