Marquette Bank Continues 47-Year Tradition and Awards Scholarships to 54 Local High School GraduatesNeighborhood bank celebrates 47th annual Scholarship Program
Orland Park, IL (May 30, 2013) – Marquette Bank, a neighborhood bank, continued a 47-year tradition by awarding $2,500 scholarships to 54 graduating seniors from neighborhood high schools in Chicago and the southwest suburbs. A total of $135,000 was awarded to local students. Funded by the Marquette Bank Education Foundation (MBEF), scholarships were awarded to students recommended by their guidance counselors and principals. Students were selected based on financial need, scholastic achievement and a record of volunteer service in their respective communities. “While having good grades and demonstrating a financial need were important determining factors in selecting scholarship recipients, students who gave back to the community through volunteer activities and service stood out the most,” George Moncada, President and CEO of Marquette Bank, said. “We’re happy the participating schools have chosen students who share a similar passion with Marquette Bank of helping others, and we wish this year’s recipients the best of luck with their future education,” Moncada said. Since 1967, over $2.6 million in scholarships has been awarded to nearly 1,400 high school students from Chicagoland neighborhoods. The scholarship can be used for any post-secondary education program, including: four-year universities, community colleges and vocational training schools.
