Barrington, IL, 12/22/14 – The Barrington Huntington Learning Center announced the winner of its College Scholarship Sweepstakes. Bella McCloskey of Tower Lakes, IL, received a $500 scholarship toward future college tuition and fees. McCloskey is currently a junior at Barrington High School and loves physics and ceramics. Bella has been visiting colleges and universities west of Chicago as she prefers to attend a college in a state with warmer weather.
“She was excited to find out that she had won the scholarship. She forgot that her entry was submitted when she signed up for the ACT prep program. Winning was a big surprise,” said McCloskey’s parents.
“Huntington is a proud supporter of high school students who strive to attend college, and we are excited to assist this student with her college tuition,” said Beth Meier of the Barrington Huntington Learning Center. In addition to the Barrington center, Huntington Learning Centers across the country participated in Huntington’s College Scholarship Sweepstakes.
High school students aged 14 and older were eligible to enter, as were parents, grandparents and friends of high school students attending college after graduation. Entries were submitted via text message.
