PROPOSED RESOLUTION

 

THANKING PEPSICO AND THE CITY COLLEGES OF CHICAGO

 

WHEREAS, PepsiCo has been a fixture across the Country and Cook County for decades, and

 

WHEREAS, PepsiCo employs many Cook County residents, and

 

WHEREAS, PepsiCo has in many ways exhibited its dedication to the Community, but perhaps in no way more important than its cooperation with the City Colleges of Chicago, and

 

WHEREAS, the City Colleges of Chicago worked hand in hand with PepsiCo to create a new scholarship program, and

 

WHEREAS, the City Colleges of Chicago is one of the largest community college systems in the country, and

 

WHEREAS, the City Colleges of Chicago includes seven campuses and has several award-winning culinary schools, and

 

WHEREAS, the City Colleges of Chicago and PepsiCo joined forces to establish a scholarship program, and

 

WHEREAS, that program will enable individuals from the South and West Sides of Chicago to attend Olive-Harvey College and Richard J. Daley College who then can join an apprenticeship with PepsiCo, and

 

WHEREAS, nearly half of African American men, mostly located on the South and West Sides, are unemployed or not attending school, and

 

WHEREAS, the scholarship will cover full tuition for participants, making the American Dream available to a number of individuals who did not have access to it before, and

 

WHEREAS, this type of private-public partnership is exactly what is needed to make the world a better place.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the President and Cook County Board of Commissioners that PepsiCo and the City Colleges of Chicago are thanked and honored for their collaboration and dedication to the communities they serve.
