Black History Celebration

Dear COMTO Members and Friends,

The Chicago Chapter of the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) will host “College Bound!! Knowledge is Power” Scholarship Fundraiser during Black History Month on Thursday, February 20, 2020 from 5 pm-9 pm at the South Shore Cultural Center – Solarium.  

This event will be held to raise money for our chapter’s scholarship fund and with your support, this will be another successful endeavor. The program will include dinner, entertainment (Comedian Jay Deep, Double Stitch Fashionista’s, Ericka & Monica Simmons) dynamic speakers (State Senator Elgie Sims, CTA President Dorval Carter & Illinois Tollway Chief Terry Miller) with views of our illustrious City of Chicago lakefront setting of the South Shore Cultural Center.

COMTO Chicago’s scholarship program provided $8,000 in scholarships in 2019.  It’s our goal to provide $15,000 in scholarships to deserving students this year.  We invite you to make a difference to a worthy cause and support your COMTO Chicago to provide scholarships to local students inspiring to go into the transportation industry.
