The sixth annual Big Shoulders Fund High School Scholars Symposium will be held on Monday, March 6th from 9:00am to 11:30am at Dominican University. Check-in will begin at 8:30am in Slate Lobby. This dynamic program will offer new tools and ideas for our students as they begin preparing for college and their future careers. Over the last six years, we have received very positive reviews from our scholars about the experience, and we are excited to offer it again. Whether freshmen, sophomore, junior or senior, the program provides an opportunity to hear lessons learned from individuals that followed the same path and ideas to effectively plan for the next step in their educational career. Students with the following renewable scholarships –Access Renewed, Beeson, C & M Scholars of St. Sabina, Canning, Corboy-Dempsey, Depaul Prep, Dr. Scholl Foundation, Gallagher, Grant Thornton, Greg Perry, Holy Trinity, ICCW, JCB Family, JCB Leadership, Mazza, Napleton Band, Querrey & Simpson, Ringer, SQ, St. Malachy, STEM – Exelon, Thomas A. Reynolds, Jr./ Winston & Strawn LLP, and Valenti Charitable Foundation– are required to attend. The gathering will be held at Dominican University in the Lund Auditorium located at 7900 West Division Street, River Forest, IL 60305. This year we are also asking for at least one College Counselor from each school to attend, along with one additional faculty/staff or parent chaperone per school.
