Community Events to engage the head, heart, & hands

Congratulations to CWS Student Liam Gorzen

Chicago Fire Department Awards Student Scholarship

8th grade student, Liam Gorzen, was very excited when he learned that he is to be a recipient of this year’s Chicago Fire Department’s Gold Badge Society’s High School Scholarship. The Gold Badge Society advocates for firefighters and paramedics, offering financial, emotional and operational support for members of the Chicago Fire Department as well as offering outreach to families on the national level.

This specific monetary award supports High School and College scholarships for children of active, retired, and disabled or deceased firefighters and paramedics from the Chicago Fire Department. Scholarship recipients had to be nominated by community members and demonstrate academic achievement supported with institutional documentation.

Liam attended the recent awards ceremony on Sunday, May 15th at the Chicago Fire Department’s Monthly Mass at Holy Family Church on Roosevelt Road.

Congratulations Liam, on a job well done!
