Burr Ridge residents' donation jumpstarts sholarship program

BURR RIDGE – Burr Ridge residents Emmy and Bob King recently donated $1.5 million to the Chicago Zoological Society to create the King Conservation Science Scholars program.

The program will serve 120 Chicago-area high school students, 65 percent of whom will be female and/or underserved students.

The society is teaming up with several local schools and community organizations, including Eden Place Nature Center, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, Urban League, Academy for Urban School Leadership, Rasmussen College and Benedictine University.

Students will be required to complete a minimum of 120 hours per year in noncredit program courses offered at Brookfield Zoo and other locations.

Courses are designed to build competency in science, environmental education and career and college readiness.
