CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 09, 2014) - Four area CPS students are one step closer to their goal of attending college thanks to the IPLAC Educational Foundation, which awards scholarships to CPS students who have achieved superior academic success, have demonstrated a strong sense of community through their extra-curricular activities, and have made a commitment to pursue engineering, science or pre-law in college.
On Tuesday evening at the Union League Club of Chicago, Ornella Amoah (Roger C. Sullivan H.S.), Enrique Galarza (John F. Kennedy H.S.), Yong Yi "Vicky" Huang (Lane Tech H.S.), and Higinio Vazquez (Carl Schurz H.S.) were recognized as the Foundation's 2014 award recipients. Ms. Amoah plans to study chemistry at Jackson State. Mr. Galarza plans to study pharmacy at the University of Illinois - Chicago. Ms. Huang plans to study engineering at University of Wisconsin - Madison, and Mr. Vazquez plans to study biology at the University of Chicago. Since its inception in 1991, the IPLAC Educational Foundation has awarded scholarships annually to CPS students.
The Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago ("IPLAC") is an organization of about 1,000 Chicago-based attorneys who practice in the area of intellectual property. The organization is over 100 years old, and its members established the Foundation to encourage Chicago public school students to pursue careers in science, engineering and law.
