Holiday Scholarship Dance Helps Further Education For Strongsville High School Graduates

Strongsville Post editor

The fruits of Christmas were ripened in late spring as the Strongsville Chamber of Commerce presented its scholarship recipients at its May luncheon at the Strongsville Holiday Inn.

The Strongsville Chamber of Commerce Holiday Scholarship Dance, held on Dec. 3, raised money for Strongsville High School seniors. Scholarship funds were raised through ticket sales, silent auction and raffle.

All money raised after expenses went directly to scholarships. The 2009 event raised enough money to fund scholarships for 15 graduating seniors.

Chairman of the Holiday Scholarship Dance Committee Greg Finkler thanked the community for its support of the event.

“The Chamber recognizes the benefit to the business community of having a strong educational system,” he said. “The Chamber made the commitment to this event and is very proud of this commitment. The Chamber is extremely grateful to the community in supporting our event.”

The 2010 Holiday Scholarship Dance was the largest in terms of attendance the Chamber has hosted in several years.

“Our success is due in large part to the small business community. These local businesses help with sponsorships for the event, as well as buying tables,” Finkler said. “This support allows us to continue our commitment. I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to students on your accomplishments. When it’s time for graduation please consider Strongsville and Northeast Ohio as a place to start your career.”

Rotary Notes August 5 2011

Posted by Ken McEntee on Jun 11, 2011 June 7, 2011 As of 31 May, Rotarians have raised about $174.7 million for Rotary’s $200 Million Challenge. These contributions will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill& Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

The Strongsville Chamber of Commerce honored scholarship recipients at a May 21 lunch at the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Scholarship Dance in December raised the monies that resulted in educational funds for graduating seniors.

STRONGSVILLE The Strongsville community has come through again for the youth of the city. The generosity of December made the student scholarships of May possible.

The Strongsville Chamber of Commerce hosted a lunch celebrating graduating seniors as the organization honored students heading off to college and the military. Approximately $50,000 in scholarships, all made possible by the Chamber of Commerce Holiday Scholarship Dance last December, were distributed.

Strongsville Mayor Thomas Perciak was at the scholarship lunch to pose for photos with recipients and offer his congratulations to the soon to be graduates that will soon start their journey on making an impact on the world.

Congratulations and all the best. Please make Strongsville proud. Thats what were here for, the mayor said. Moms and dads, you brought them into this world. Now you have to let them go as they spread their wings and fly away. We hope that they all come back home to roost one day and bring those educated talents back here to serve our community.

The process in how scholarships were awarded was a bit different in 2013 as opposed to years past. Seniors had to undergo an interview process with area business leaders and Strongsville Chamber of Commerce members.
