The Taste of Lakewood supports local students
The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarship program, funded in part with event sponsorship dollars and proceeds from The Taste of Lakewood, awards scholarships each year to four high school seniors from either Lakewood High School or St. Edward High School. Recipients are recognized on stage during the event.
Awards are given to those who best demonstrate exceptional dedication to their studies, extra-curricular activities, and, just as importantly, a commitment to working at a part-time or full-time job during their high school years.
Sixty college bounds seniors have received over $175,000 in Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarships over the past 15 years. The past two years, the Taste of Lakewood has been a finalist for Best Charitable Event in Cleveland Magazine’s Best of the West competition.
