Sycamore residents ‘pay it forward’ with new scholarship fund

October 3, 2018

SYCAMORE – The DeKalb County Community Foundation announced a new fund that will award an annual scholarship to a Sycamore High School graduate.

Luan and Greg Olson were scholarship recipients when they attended college and wanted to create a fund that would “pay forward” the generosity they experienced and what the community has provided for them and their children, according to a news release. They graduated from Illinois universities, and their three children graduated from Sycamore High School and the University of Illinois.

There are more than 70 scholarship funds to date at the community foundation. Donations to any fund at the foundation, including the Luan and Greg Olson Scholarship Fund, can be made online atdekalbccf.org/donate or by mail to the DeKalb County Community Foundation, 475 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore, IL 60178.
