Scholarship Winners - 2018
Lockport Township Government Scholarship
The Lockport Township Officials are proud to announce the 15th annual Lockport Township Government Scholarships. The township offers programs that provide for the needs of its residents, from senior transportation, to road improvements, to help families in need and registering voters. The rising cost of education is an issue for many area families. Ron Alberico, Lockport Township Supervisor said, “This scholarship program is a great opportunity for the Township to support education and recognize outstanding young members of this community. Investing in our youth is an investment in the future.”
The committee set out to honor well-rounded students and assist them with their education expenses. In order to qualify applicants had to be graduating high school seniors with a 2.5 GPA. Candidates also needed to demonstrate their involvement in school, extra-curricular and work related activities. They were also required to submit an essay entitled “What a College Education means to me." Four scholarships in the amount of $1000 were awarded at the monthly town meeting on June 12, 2018.
The award recipients are Margaret Drew, Allison Hankins (not pictured), Benjamin Lipkin from Lockport Township High School, and Daniel Spatz from Romeoville High School respectively pictured below. Congratulations to these outstanding individuals and their families.
