SIOR CHICAGO CHAPTER SUPPORTS LOCAL
CHARITY FOR FIFTH YEAR
The SIOR Chicago Chapter raised a total of 21 $500 Trunk
Scholarships to support the Ada S. McKinley College-Bound
Trunk Scholarship program for 2015. Students receiving
the scholarships are selected based on a written essay describing how the scholarship would allow them to be suitably prepared to enter their first year of college. This is the
fifth year the Chapter has supported this charitable initiative and this was the Chapter’s largest donation to date,
thanks to the various sponsors and generous out-of-pocket
donations from members. Recipients were presented with
their scholarships at McCrone Industries in Chicago, in July,
with Derek Young from CBS Channel 2 serving as Master
