Sam Geraci of Steger earns a University of Illinois Springfield scholarship

Sam Geraci, a resident of Steger and communication major at the University of Illinois Springfield, has been awarded the Luedke Family Scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Geraci, a baseball fanatic, chose to pursue a communication degree with dreams of working for a professional sports team.

“My dream is to work for one of the major professional teams in Chicago,” said Geraci, who is also a UIS baseball player.

Geraci transferred to UIS from Parkland Community College in Champaign, where he also played baseball.

“Baseball is a big part of my life and helped lead me to UIS,” said Geraci.
