Last Chance to Submit Scholarship Applications!

The Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation is accepting 2017 college scholarship applications through the end of this week. Please share with your employees so their children and dependents may benefit.

The scholarship is open to graduating High School Seniors that reside in Kenosha County, Wisconsin and have a connection to the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce either through a Member employer or a parent/guardian’s employer. The due date for applications is March 31, 2017 by 3:00pm.

Over the years, the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Foundation has given away thousands in scholarship funds to local Kenosha County High School students. They are our future leaders and we believe an investment in their education will set them on the right path to giving back to the community. The scholarship funds raised come from generous Kenosha area businesses participating in our fundraisers.

Leadership Kenosha – March 2017

The March 15, 2017 Leadership Kenosha class was hosted by Gateway Technical College at the Horizon Center, where Manoj Babu gave a tour of their automotive, precision tools, and aviation departments and Zina Haywood highlighted some of the wonderful programs that Gateway provides to our community. Next, Dr. Sue Savalgio, Superintendent of KUSD, spoke of how local citizens can best support public schooling. Kenosha has the oldest public school system in the state and it was wonderful to hear how many opportunities students are given through the public schools.

Our last speaker of the day was H. Muir of LIFT Shop. He spoke to us about leadership branding and how to use our strengths, rather than focusing on improving weaknesses, to achieve our goals. By the end, we were all a little more comfortable and confident in talking about ourselves and our purpose in business.

I saw such diversity and passion for learning through all levels of education, not only in the speakers, but also in my fellow Leadership Kenosha participants. We discussed a chapter from the book, “The Best Leaders are the Best Learners.” The entire group was in agreement that leadership is a capacity that can be built in anyone.
