December Holiday Party and Scholarship Announcement

group A big thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Chicago’s Leading  Edge Chapter Holiday Party, especially those who brought a toy to donate to Toy’s for Tots.  We’ve had a wonderful year full of networking, socializing, great tours and fundraising.  We wouldn’t be where we are without the generous support of our membership.

We’d also like to congratulate this year’s scholarship winners Maggie Schulz (Future’s Unlimited Scholarship) and Lauren Loomis (Paperless Pilot Scholarship)! We received many well-qualified applications, and it was a difficult selection process. I would like to encourage all of you to apply next year as well, as we may be adding a scholarship as funds allow.

Thank you as always and see you next year.  Season’s greetings!
