Community Awards for
Excellence and Leadership

Established in 2003, the Community Awards for Excellence and Leadership recognize outstanding leaders from Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Melrose Park, Maywood and surrounding communities who have contributed significantly to community leadership, education and humanitarianism.

The program also raises funds to provide need-based scholarships for students from the Near West suburbs attending Concordia University Chicago.

We recognize and thank all of the individuals and organizations who generously support our community and local students through this program.

Community Awards Banquet took place on Friday, March 21, 2014 at The Carleton of Oak Park, Oak Park.
