Providing Scholarships

Chris loved sports and played both hockey and baseball during his high school career at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, IL. The Foundation established the $500 "Tough as Steele" hockey scholarship and the $500 Christopher Steele Baseball Scholarship that were each awarded for the first time in 2008. These scholarships will be awarded annually to help an athlete pursue their goals of higher education.

In 2014, the Foundation Board of Directors voted to increase each scholarship to $1,000 in recognition of continually increasing college costs.
