The Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce recognizes three local graduating seniors every spring who have demonstrated aptitude and academic excellence in the study of Business. Investing in our future leaders through scholarships promotes innovation for future business and support for our local community. The scholarship recipients are all active members in local community groups and activities and attend one of Irondequoit's three high schools.
We are pleased to announce that this year's deserving scholarship winners are:
