Anthony D’Andrea, CEO of Ateki, strongly believes in supporting the community. Determined to help and wanting to give a little back, a scholarship program was started for local students. Ateki values academics  and routinely gives out scholarships to aid students with the cost of books, classes, supplies, etc.

Madison Knight, an undergraduate, at Lewis University is studying to be a special education teacher. She expressed that she pays for school all on her own and that this year FAFSA was unable to help her with funds. We understand how hard it is for students to financially support themselves, especially when the cost of college is steadily on the rise.

Upon hearing this, we wanted to surprise Madison and presented her with a scholarship. The money went towards purchasing books for the school year. We wish Madison all the best on her journey and look forward to her blossoming into a wonderful special education teacher!
