Friendship Senior Options Foundation has announced the names of five area-graduating seniors, who have been selected to receive $1000 scholarships for college. Shannon A. Herra and Jailyn J. Sronkoski, both dining room servers at GreenFields, will receive associate scholarships. Melissa T. Tran of Schaumburg, Blake D. Turcich of Geneva, and Ryan P. Stackhouse of St. Charles will receive community scholarships. Friendship Senior Options operates two retirement communities: Friendship Village of Schaumburg and GreenFields of Geneva. Both communities have strong ties to young people. Residents enjoy intergenerational events regularly and have formed strong bonds with the high school students who work in their communities. In launching the scholarship program, Stephen Yenchek, president and CEO explained that FSO's commitment to seniors extends beyond their current services. "Friendship Senior Options (FSO) is a proud leader within the senior care industry. Our mantra is ‘Get Set' and we believe that education is the key to preparing for the future. We're proud to offer these scholarships to students advancing their education and consider this to be one of the many ways we invest in the future of our communities."
