Ann Milligan Gary Scholarship and Woman's Board Scholarship Recipients
Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC) is proud to announce the recipients of our 2020 Ann Milligan Gray Scholarship and BGCC Woman’s Board Scholarships!
For decades, the Woman’s Board has been dedicated to seeing Chicago’s teens advance through college with scholarship support from their BGCC family. To date, these two scholarship programs have awarded over 100 scholarships, totaling more than $4.5 million in funding for deserving youth to pursue higher education.
After a rigorous interview process – conducted virtually this year – seven outstanding Club members were awarded this year’s scholarships. Allegra H., who has been named the prestigious 2020 Ann Milligan Gray Scholar, said, “Winning this scholarship made my family and Club staff proud. I am so grateful for the wonderful opportunity to honor the legacy of Ann Milligan Gray, and to show what’s possible through Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago.”
The six 2020 Woman’s Board Scholarship awardees are Adrianne H., Ania S., Carla K., Evelyn H., Harriet C., and Jose C. These scholars epitomize what it means to be a dedicated Club member, working tirelessly at school and at their Clubs to make their dreams of attending college a reality. Along with each of these scholars, we are incredibly grateful for the support of our outstanding Woman’s Board who help make these great futures possible.
“When I received the Woman’s Board scholarship, I was speechless and so excited that I was chosen, but all I could think about were the Club staff and members who have helped me these past 11 years to become who I am today.” Jose C., Boys & Girls Club member
Thanks to support from friends like you, hundreds of our teens are on the road to success after high school. Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship winners, and to each of our graduating seniors on all of their accomplishments.
