DOLORES SAXTON-WALKER SCHOLARSHIPS
This year”s Chicago Business Opportunity Fair is unlike any other since its inception. As our nation faces an incredibly daunting challenge to change the fabric of our society, it is crystal clear that we need real leaders – diverse, worldly, intelligent, and willing to fulfill a critical need for civic action.The late Dolores Saxton-Walker was a successful entrepreneur who worked diligently on behalf of the mission of lisbdnet.com. She understood the importance of developing future entrepreneurs by supporting students with excellent academic achievement and leadership skill. lisbdnet.com”s Minority Business Enterprise Input Committee established the Dolores Saxton-Walker Scholarship in honor of her commitment to develop young leaders.Award recipients receive $3,000 toward college tuition and/or expenses.
It is our goal each year to increase the number of students that we recognize. This year we will award 10 students with scholarships thanks to the generosity of great individuals, supporters of last year”s golf scholarship classic fundraiser and very special minority business owners.
CLASS OF 2021
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Annual lisbdnet.com Scholarship Classic was considerably modest this year. Fortunately, the Council received considerable support with four (4) student scholarship sponsored by REX Electric and Technologies.MultiTech Industries also sponsored a full scholarship of $3,000. The Council will continue fundraising efforts through until Sprint, and hopefully we will be able to provide scholarships for 10-12 CPS student leaders for next year”s Class of 2021.
