CHICAGO, Ill., Sept. 8, 2016 – Chauntea Robinson of Chicago, Ill. has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship by Castle Lanterra Properties (CLP). The CLP Scholarship Program was launched earlier this year for residents and families living in the company’s properties throughout the East, South, and Midwestern U.S.

Robinson, whose family resides in CLP’s Midpointe Apartments in Chicago, is an English major at Illinois State University in Normal, Ill. “I chose English as a major because of the broad number of employment opportunities it provides,” she said. “After graduation, I hope to work in publishing, marketing, or a related field.”
As part of CLP’s inaugural scholarship program competition, “we chose to have students write an essay covering an issue of personal, local, national or international concern,” said Elie Rieder, founder and CEO of CLP. “The goal is to encourage self-expression and consideration of the world today and their role in the community.”

For her essay, Robinson highlighted the high tax issues confronting residents of Illinois. “It is very important for citizens to use their power and intellect to effect change,” she said. “It is an issue that we all must address in terms of its impact on our quality of life.”

About her selection for the scholarship she says, “I am so happy to be attending college and to have a promising career ahead of me as a result, and I sincerely appreciate the opportunity that this program has provided.”

Robinson is one of three inaugural winners of scholarships offered by CLP. Howard University senior Yolanda Toby, whose family resides at Harbor Pointe in Bayonne, N.J., was a recipient of a $5,000 scholarship. Obtaining a $1,000 scholarship was JaMia Sneed, a resident of Heights at Skyland in Tuscaloosa, Ala., a student at Shelton State Community College.

CLP tenants eligible for the program include high school seniors, graduates and post-secondary undergraduates planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year institution. “We received many strong applications from students who recognize the value of their community and who continue to work diligently to pursue their goals,” said Rieder. “Our objective is to support our community connection and the hard work of our resident students and their families.”
