awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are interested

one or more scholarships for those who are planning to attend a business
college, two-year college, four-year university, or to a graduating high
school senior who is planning to attend a vocational, technical, or trade
To be eligible for these scholarships, applicants must reside in the Village

Commerce. The application period runs from January through the end of
February with scholarship winners recognized at a scholarship breakfast in
“Receiving this scholarship meant so much to me. It is nice to know that
hard work in and out of the high school classroom really pays off, and that
it does not go unrecognized. I have been able to put the money from this
scholarship toward my college education which is something I highly value. It gives me motivation to get every advantage possible out of this
next chapter of my life.”
