Corboy & Demetrio has announced the recipient of the 2019 Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence is Chicago Lights Tutoring, which provides students at the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago with one-on-one tutoring and mentoring services. The Award was presented at the Chicago Bar Association Lawyers Lend-A-Hand Annual Spring Awards Dinner on April 25, 2019.
“Chicago Lights is a home for me and so many others,” said Devon Collins, a student at Christ the King
High School, who spoke at the dinner and who has received tutoring from Chicago Lights since the first grade. “I am so happy I went to Chicago Lights tutoring because they inspire me to be the best that I can be,” Collins added.
The Award, named in honor of Thomas A. Demetrio, President and Co-founder of Corboy & Demetrio, and funded by him, is given annually to tutoring and mentoring programs that impact the lives of underprivileged youth in Chicago.
