We could use your help.
We have been having some success in the past several years in growing the scholarships we provide to the school. Last year, these included six awards of $2,000 each in 2017 (growing from $1400 each in 2016), and honor outstanding students (and a few exceptional faculty members)
• Brian Piccolo (top male athlete)
• Babe Zaharias (top female athlete)
• Beverly Fiore (drama)
• Dr. John Mulcare (science)
• Ralph King (industrial arts)
• Grutzmacher Family (achievement by a child/grandchild of a Lisle graduate)
Looking ahead, we have a couple objectives:
1. Increase the size of the awards. Ultimately, we want to grow these to $2500 or more, but must increase in steps as we build our endowment and annual commitments.
2. Include other deserving groups in our awards. Adding the King Award was a big deal, as the achievements of students in the industrial arts have not been recognized with scholarships in the past. We seek to find another group that is underrepresented to honor.
We have a target to grow awards to a total of $15,000 in 2018 and $18,000 by 2019, above and beyond the $9,600 we gave in 2016, and believe this is possible. We will be in a position to take another big step up in 2018 with your help.
