The Brookfield Kiwanis Club in May presented four $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors in addition to other awards for area grade-school students.
The scholarships were awarded to Mona Novikas and Jaden Cruz from Riverside-Brookfield High School and Eric Monarrez and Catherine Alrevalo from Lyons Township High School. Both Novickas and Alrevalo will be attending DePaul University next fall. Cruz will be attending Concordia University, while Monarrez will be attending University of Illinois-Chicago.
Outstanding Eighth-Grader awards were presented to Frieda Pineda from Park Junior High, Gabrielle Trimborn from George Washington Middle School, Alison Wasielewski from St. Louise de Marillac School and Anthony Landahl from S.E. Gross Middle School.
In addition, Brought-Up Grades awards were presented to Grace Hodgen from S.E. Gross Middle School and several other students who did not attend the Kiwanis Club’s May 22 awards banquet.
