Each year, The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club of Chicago hosts the Leaders of the Future Scholarship Awards Dinner where several young achievers receive recognition for their steadfast involvement in the community. At this year’s event, which took place on May 10th at the Dank Haus in Chicago, Morici, Longo & Associates congratulates Yasmina Chammas, a 10th-grade student at Lane Tech College Prep High School, for obtaining the “Leader of the Future” Scholarship.
Our team at Morici, Longo & Associates proudly offers an annual scholarship to a deserving high school student who exhibits excellent academic commitment and leadership within his or her community, and Miss Chammas has done just that.
The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club & Our Firm
The formal dinner at Dank Haus began at 6:00 pm and included a silent auction and raffle for the benefit of The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club, a well-respected non-profit. The organization focuses on youth development by modeling leadership, promoting athletics, and developing after-school programs. For 88 years, The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club has been a pillar in the community and has provided countless children with the resources they need to build a better future.
At Morici, Longo & Associates, we are committed to helping The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club as they help secure a better future for young people in and around the Chicago area. The programs this organization funds are invaluable, and we are proud to lend our support by funding an annual scholarship for deserving students.
The Leader of the Future Scholarship
Yasmina Chammas, a member of The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club, has been a part of the Lane scholars program since 2009, during which time she gained valuable experience as a role model for other members and her own siblings. She has been a leader in her class since December of 2015, and a senior leader since 2018. Yasmina’s academic interests are focused on chemistry, and she hopes to study biochemistry and forensic science to pursue a career as a forensic pathologist. Outside of the classroom, she enjoys playing basketball—in fact, she plays in multiple competitive leagues and frequently teaches younger players.
We congratulate Yasmina Chammas on her outstanding achievements and look forward to seeing what more she accomplishes in the future.
