Approximately four thousand scholarships were made available to students, parents, and legal guardians.
Pete Kadens, a 40-year-old father from Illinois, retired at the age of 40 after a prosperous career, but he has a lot more work to do.
As a devoted philanthropist, Kadens has made it one of his top priorities to enhance the quality of life for families in Chicago that have a low income. In February, he gave tuition-free college scholarships to thousands of students attending five public high schools in the city of Chicago.
Within four days, Kadens’ non-profit organization, Hope Chicago, went to every school in the city to share the exciting news with the students there. But hold on, there’s more to it.
