Chicago Heights, IL—(ENEWSPF)—Two Prairie State College graduates are recipients of Illinois General Assembly Scholarships. Lesliefaye Gogins, of Park Forest, received a scholarship from Representative Al Riley (D-38th District) and Eric Marshall, of Chicago Heights, received a scholarship from Representative George Scully (D-80th District).

Gogins and Marshall will each receive one full year of tuition to attend the Illinois university of their choice. Gogins will attend the University of Illinois at Springfield to pursue a dual bachelor’s and master’s degree in public administration. Marshall will attend the University of Illinois at Chicago to major in biology.

Gogins “screamed with excitement” when she found out she was the recipient of the scholarship. A returning adult student with two children, Gogins said paying for her education has been a challenge.

“When I left the workforce to pursue my education, I was presented with some unforeseen economic devastation,” said Gogins. “As a recipient of this scholarship, I am thrilled to be able to continue my education so I can create a better life for my family.”
