Each year the Don Diego Scholarship Foundation awards four $5,000 college scholarships to deserving seniors in San Diego County.  All winners must have participated in the Del Mar Fairgrounds in some way.  After a competitive application and interview process, the Don Diego board members interviewed qualified candidates on May 10 and selected the following recipients:  RaeAnne vanTol, 4-H; Kendall Lynch, FFA; Kirby Challman, Employee; and Meredith Lehmann, Exhibitor.

The winners were recognized at an annual gala, which was held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Turf Club on June 28. Guests enjoyed mingling with the scholars, fine dining, cocktails, a silent auction and a concert by Creedence Clearwater Revisted.

The Don Diego Fund has awarded more than $575,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education since 1985.  The Don Diego Scholarship was named after Tom Hernandez, who served as the Fair’s goodwill ambassador from 1947-1984.
