Congratulations to Adriana Aumann-Weyenberg, recipient of the 2018 Renaissance Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship award will assist Adriana as she begins attendance at Kishwaukee College and Northern Illinois University, pursuing a degree in Psychology.
“I am beyond thrilled,” said Adriana. “I know from personal experience just how hard it can be for people currently in the work force to find a scholarship for college. I am so thankful for this scholarship and the opportunity to pursue my dreams.”
Funding for this scholarship award is possible through the generosity of local philanthropist Yvonne Johnson. Created in 2007 at the DeKalb County Community Foundation, the Renaissance Scholarship Fund provides educational support to those who are currently part of the work force and wish to pursue their dreams of continuing education.
