The IDES OF MARCH with 2013 Scholarship Recipient IRIDIAN HERNANDEZ.
The Ides Of March presented the first award of their Morton High School Scholarship to IRIDIAN HERNANDEZ on Wednesday, May15th at a ceremony in Berwyn. Ms. Hernandez displayed a number of her Artistic Works, including a custom “Ides Of March Way” CD Case she designed especially for the band. Iridian related that she plans to attend Dominican University in River Forest following her graduation this year. The Ides shared stories of their Morton Years, and how much influence their studies played on the success of the band. It was ‘old home week” for the 4 Original IDES who attended Morton West. Ides stage Manager Toby Bermann also is a MW alum, while Scott May and the Late John Larsen attended Morton East in Cicero. The Ides enjoyed meeting the Senior Morton Administrators and a few of Ms. Hernandez’ Teachers who related that she is an Honor Roll Student. Special thanks is due to Ides Attorney (and fellow Morton West Alum) Rich Brom for coordinating the establishment of the Scholarship. Following the ceremony, the Ides dined in true Berwyn fashion at the Bohemian Food Temple, Czech Plaza Restaurant.
