Four graduating Evanston Township High School seniors have been awarded scholarships from the North End Mothers’ Club.
The group’s highest honor, the North End Mothers’ Club Award, is presented to Olamide Thomas. This four-year scholarship is presented annually to the senior who identifies as female or gender nonconforming, and who ranks first among their classmates in all-around qualities, including intellectual ability, steadfastness of character, capacity for leadership, and distinguished service to school and community.
The NEMC’s STEM Scholarships, awarded to graduating female students who are planning to pursue a post-secondary degree leading to a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math career at a two- or four-year STEM program, have gone to Lia Potter and Sofia Hletko. Each recipient will receive $1,500 toward her studies.
The $1,000 Joanne Murphy Trautwein Music Scholarship is awarded to Asher Baron.
Founded in 1911, the North End Mothers’ Club offers women all across Evanston the opportunity to socialize and support philanthropic efforts and organizations providing services to the youth of Evanston.
NEMC congratulates these impressive seniors.
