5/25/16- Third Annual Pillars Dinner Honored Long-term Sustainers and First Timers
At the 3rd annual CIOGC Pillars Dinner, longtime sustainers and individuals meeting CIOGC for the first time were introduced to one another. Special guest speaker and veteran Senate page senior Nabeel Ghani shared his personal experiences as a two-time senate page serving Illinois Senators on Illinois Muslim Action Day. A senior and honor student at Islamic Foundation School, Ghani reflected on how public servitude has run in his family, the importance of civic engagement for the community and how this can be realized through CIOGC’s annual Senate Page program. While studying for his AP classes, Ghani was able to memorize the Holy Quran in Arabic and recited verses at the dinner.
