Letter: Kudos to Scholarship Fair helpers

To the Editor:

The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry would like to thank the volunteers of the 2013 Scholarship Fair Committee (Carol Alfrey, Christy Seawall, Robbin Kaifesh and Sally McClellan) for a very successful and well attended event.

More than 100 attendees were able to meet with representatives from over 25 organizations and schools; learn about available scholarships; and attend workshops to help successfully apply for financial aid. Thank you to Robbin Kaifesh, Dr. Lynn Burks and Crystal Brennan, all of DeVry University, for speaking on the topics of “Doing an Internet Scholarship Search,” “Completing a Scholarship Application and Essay” and “How to complete a FAFSA.”

The Chamber sincerely appreciates our generous and supportive sponsors: the Sugar Grove Fire Department Association (speaker sponsors); Waubonsee Community College and White and Ekker P.C. (table sponsor); Fifth Third Bank in Elburn and the event/chamber scholarship sponsors: Castle Bank, College Connections, Engineering Enterprises Inc., Financial Security Group Inc., Jewel and Learning Ascent.
