Sheridan Park Student Awarded Prestigious STEM Scholarship

Congratulations to Sheridan Park's Nicolas Ramirez, one of nine high school junior/seniors who was awarded a scholarship by ComEd for demonstrating his interest in pursuing STEM excellence.

Nicholas, who came to this country from Colombia just two years ago, attends DePaul College Prep.

The CEO of ComEd, Anne Pramaggiore, said in a statement, "We see investments in STEM education as investments in our future workforce and the Illinois economy.  We are excited to work with these great academic institutions to encourage and grow tomorrow’s best and brightest talent right here in Illinois."

In addition to the scholarship, Nicolas will have the opportunity to be mentored by a ComEd engineer. The students who excel in STEM during their high school careers will have an opportunity for a scholarship at DePaul University and continued mentoring.

We're cheering you on, Nicolas!
