10 Grads Receive 2022 HOH Scholarships
Ten District 28 graduates, who are currently Glenbrook North seniors, received a 2022 Homer O. Harvey Scholarship as announced Friday, May 20 at the Glenbrook North awards ceremony.
This year’s recipients are Penelope Badgley, Jenna Ciesla, Lillian Denk, Sofia Fayman Tacy Guest, Morissa Lambert, Allison Lau, Bailey Onixt, Jonah Prober and Kate Rassin.
Since the scholarship was founded in 1989, $352,500 has been awarded to 388 Northbrook Junior High graduates.
The main fund-raiser for the scholarship fund is the annual HOH5K Run, Walk and Fun Run sponsored by the District 28 PTO Council, traditionally held on the first Saturday in May. After a two-year pause, the event was in 2022, raising $37,500 for future scholarship recipients.
The next HOH5K is scheduled for May 6, 2023.
