The Chicago River Student Congress, at Clark Park, last Saturday was well attended by a young and enthusiastic crowd. During the opening awards ceremony, one of our former students, Amer Dzankovic, was honored with his Von Steuben track team, for work cleaning up litter from the River Park track and field. Amer is a senior and is headed to College at… University of Chicago on a full ride. Amer said he was drawn to UC because of its… environmental programs. Congratulations Amer!
