FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce recently presented its second annual FELO scholarship awards.
The 2016 awards were presented to Jake Sohigian of Ludlowe High School and John Natoli of Fairfield Warde High School. Both students had outstanding high school careers, demonstrating high standards of excellence in their academics, volunteer efforts and leadership roles.
The goal of the Fairfield Emerging Leaders Organization is to network among themselves, share ideas and discuss challenges to help them achieve success as they continue their career path toward more senior-level management positions.
In addition, its mission is to help raise money for scholarship, which will be presented annually to a graduating high school student from Ludlowe and Warde high schools who will be attending a business school or majoring in business.
“I’m very excited about the chamber’s involvement with scholarships through FELO”, said Beverly Balaz, chamber president. "I love education and I love business … we want to be part of each student’s college success."
Last year, FELO presented two $500 scholarships.This year, it raised enough money to present two $1,500 scholarships.
