McHenry County College announced the recipients of three of its high-impact scholarships: the Presidential Scholarship, 2020 Board of Trustees Scholarship and the Founding Faculty Scholarship.

Four area high school graduates, Chloe Carter of Crystal Lake Central High School, Marco Gonzalez of Woodstock North High School, Joshua Hontanosas of Huntley High School and Jessica Morin of Johnsburg High School, will be recipients of the Presidential Scholarship program. This award is given to qualified students based on academic achievements, extracurricular activities and service.

These graduates will receive a 60-credit hour scholarship to attend MCC and will cover the cost of books and any program fees, according to a news release.

The 2020 Board of Trustees Scholarship was given to Carly Gritmacker of Alden-Hebron High School, Vanessa Olandese of Woodstock High School, Tyler LoPresti of Johnsburg High School and Matthew Tepe of Huntley High School.

These four high school graduates were selected based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community involvement, according to the release. The recipients of this award will receive tuition for 60 credit hours.

Three students will receive the Founding Faculty Scholarship, awarded in recognition of retired faculty members David B. Hill, John D. Kontizer and Erwin Cornelius. This award is available to both high school graduates and current MCC students.

The recipients of this scholarship are Joshua Hastings and Rebecca Zwettler of MCC and Aiden Smith of Marengo High School. These students will receive 60 credit hours of tuition for MCC, according to the release.

“Through the generosity of community donors, many other scholarship opportunities are available through the Friends of McHenry County College Foundation,” according to the release. These include awards for student athletes, students entering health care or nursing, fire science, early childhood education, welding and more.
