Freeport, Illinois – Hundreds packed the house to enjoy great food, entertainment and to celebrate in the success of our young people in the community yesterday. On hand were numerous city leaders, representatives from highland college, local and regional business owners along with Freeport’s very own Brian Stewart who delivered a very heartwarming keynote speech from the other side of the tracks.
A silent auction was held, a 50/50 raffle, and While over 19,000 dollars in scholarships were awarded to 15 students, the unerlying message is very clear. No matter what your situation, where you come from or what you feel stands in your way to success, the power to live out your life’s dreams all lie within you.
Congratulations to all of yesterday’s scholarship winners
