Chicago’s WGN aired a cover story about a unique testing program in our Chicago office. For over a decade, the Dillon Foundation has sponsored testing for 20-25 students from Sterling High School in Sterling, Illinois. These students travel over 100 miles into the city to complete the testing at our Erie Street office.
In WGN’s report, the students discuss the impact this opportunity has had on their lives. School counselor Kaileen Gaumer even sees benefits beyond career planning: “It gets them [the students] out of Sterling and into the city. And they may not have done that before. It helps them remember there’s a life outside of Sterling, and it gives them an incredible opportunity to learn about themselves.”
