This past Tuesday, Eli’s Cheesecake attended the 29th Annual Future Farmers of America banquet and presented three scholarships to students of the Chicago High School of Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS).  This is the third year Eli’s Cheesecake has provided scholarships to students.  Two students, Tabitha Lundy and Koriana Kluss-Klekamp, received the Aaron Easter Scholarships to attend the College of Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.  The scholarship was named in honor of University of Illinois President Robert Easter’s son, who passed away in 2012 after a snowboarding accident.  Both scholarship recipients received $2,500 toward their education at the university.  Eli’s own Jeff Anderson and Marc Schulman also presented the Eli M. Schulman & Bobby Hatoff Scholarship.  The scholarship is named on behalf of Eli’s Cheesecake founder, Eli M. Schulman, and his close friend, Robert Hatoff, the owner of Allen Brothers Meats.  The scholarship was awarded to Brittany Clay, who is the 2013-2014 President of the FFA’s CHSAS Chapter and who received $5,000 toward her education at Iowa State University.  Eli’s Cheesecake prides itself on making a difference in the community and is proud to partner with CHSAS to help grant opportunities to outstanding young leaders as they begin their college careers.  We look forward to awarding next year’s scholars.
