Village names scholarship winners

Posted: May 10, 2024

The Village recently announced the winners of the annual Reta Brudd Scholarship program, which awards $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors residing in Tinley Park with plans to attend a college, university, or vocational trade school in the fall. In addition to academic achievement, a substantial consideration in selecting winners is how much community service the students have performed.

This year's scholarship recipients include Annemarie Chaveriat, John Dwyer, Omosefe Edomwande, Ava Esparza, Isabella Kreydich, Noah Moreno, Isabella Morey, Synia Taylor and Emma Tuuk.

The program is named in honor of Reta Brudd, who served as a commissioner for 46 years until her passing in April 2019. She contributed more than 20,000 hours of volunteer work and received many recognitions and awards, including a Life Achievement Award from the Tinley Park Chamber of Commerce.

Many thanks to this year's sponsorship donors, which included R.C. Wegman Construction Company, TRIA Architecture, Robinson Engineering Ltd., Del Galdo Law Group Inc., Cullen Construction Management, Christopher Burke Engineering Ltd., Homewood Disposal Service, Airy’s Inc. and One Tinley Park.

Congratulations to all the students, and good luck in the fall!
