The students must be enrolled full-time in an accredited university, community college, or education program and they are asked to provide their transcripts, work history, extracurricular activities, merit awards, and a personal statement of how this scholarship will be used to further HLR’s values of “Work Hard • Have Fun • Give Back®.”
Congratulations to Benjamin Hickey who is the son of HLR Environmental Scientist Pat Hickey! He will be attending Northern Illinois University this fall to study mechanical engineering.

During the summers Benjamin would be hard at work detasseling corn, mowing lawns for neighbors, and working for a carpenter and a residential mover. He was active in his church’s youth group and demonstrating his commitment to giving back, he volunteered at his local food pantry and homeless shelter, assisted at a kids’ camp, and participated in a mission trip to Mexico with his dad and sister.
