Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary awards scholarships to recognize two Canyon Crest Academy seniors every year. Recipients must exhibit a firm commitment to community service and social change.  By rewarding seniors who demonstrate these qualities, Rotary hopes to encourage students to “think outside the box” for career opportunities that will “make a difference” in improving our communities and those of our neighbors around the world.  The recipients this year, Jackson Backer and Quin Patterson, were presented with $500 scholarships by Kevin Cahill, founding president of Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary.

Jackson Backer runs cross country for the CCA varsity cross-country team and plays rugby for the successful San Diego Mustangs Rugby club. His Boy Scout experiences have transformed his life into thinking beyond himself to help others in need.  In earning the highest Boy Scout rank of Eagle Scout, Jackson planned and led the construction of an information kiosk at San Dieguito Park.

Quin Patterson, also an Eagle Scout, has served the Associated School Body as its Executive Treasurer, Tech Director, and in other positions.  When not at school, participating in Scout projects, or bagging groceries, he actively works to make a positive impact on the world, including building homes in Mexico with the Come Build Hope program the last two years.

Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary meets Friday mornings over breakfast at the Morgan Run Resort for fellowship, to plan service projects, and to hear from informative speakers.  For more information, call Richard Fogg (858-693-7556) or Diane Huckabee (619-818-0528) or visit
