Ela Township has awarded 10 bright Lake Zurich High School graduates college scholarships of $1,500.

The recipients are Sara Pancxyk, Shane Nolan, Rebecca Kubin, Brianna Brodeur, Lauryn Johnson, Eric James Pappas, MacKenzie Weider and Steven Mueller, Jayme Polites and Miriam Chung.

Scholarship funds do not come from tax dollars, but from the permit fees the township collects from students who pay to park at Knigge Park during the school year.

Congratulations from Ela Township, scholars!
