Chronicle Achievement Program (CAP)
The Chronicle Achievement Program recognizes local high school seniors for excellence in academics, leadership, and character. Each month, from September through March, twelve schools nominate one student to be recognized. Each student's photo, along with a list of accomplishments and activities is printed in the Kane County Chronicle on the last Thursday of the month.
In May, each student will be invited to attend a reception held in their honor, where seven students will be drawn at random to receive a $500 scholarship to the college of their choice. Students are invited to bring two family members and their nominating faculty member. All students are individually recognized and presented with a certificate in recognition of their achievements. CAP students should look for their invitation in the mail in early April. R.S.V.P. required.
For questions regarding the Chronicle Achievement Program, call Kelsey Rakers at 630-845-5241.
