Congratulations were in order for senior Sven Flodstrom during Montini Catholic's annual Academic Awards Night, held this year on Thursday, May 3rd at Bobak's Signature Events in Woodridge. Sven was among 67 Academic All Stars being honored at the banquet and is one of four local high school students awarded the Lombard Lions Club Scholarship for 2018.
In his letter to the scholarship committee, Sven outlined his goals for college (he will be attending the University of Illinois). "After graduation from college, I plan on attending law school. I would like to become a lawyer, politician,or political commentator," informed Sven. "My interest in these fields comes from wanting to participate in arguably the best country in history!"
The Lombard Lions is a service organization of men and women, founded in 1923, with the principle "We Serve," benefiting the sight and hearing impaired of the community. The club sponsors several fundraising events during the year, including Candy Days, a Pancake Breakfast, and selling refreshments at the Lilac Festival Parade (May 20th this year). They also collect used glasses, hearing aids and old keys for recycling. Each year the club presents scholarships to graduating seniors.
Sven, a graduate of Sacred Heart School in Lombard, will officially accept the award at the Lions Club's Annual Scholarship Luncheon on June 12th at Maxfield's Restaurant in Lombard.
