On Wednesday, May 25, the Morton 201 Foundation hosted a luncheon at the Morton West Freshman Academy cafeteria for the scholarship recipients and their families so that they could meet the board members as well as several donors and corporate sponsors who made their scholarships possible. Each recipient received a certificate, a gift card Las Michoacanas Ice Cream and the beautiful rose centerpiece from their table.
After the luncheon, each recipient made a short video describing the impact that receiving a Pay It Forward Scholarship will have on their educational pursuit.
