Oak Park, Illinois – The North Avenue Business Association (NABA) is sponsoring its eighth annual scholarship program for high school seniors entering college as a business major. 

"In today's tough economic times, the North Avenue Business Association feels it is very important to give back to the community and help our future business leaders fulfill their dreams of going to college and getting their business degree." states Lee Owens NABA President.
