Outstanding Canyon Crest Academy Seniors will be recognized with scholarships to continue their education beyond high school on Thursday, May 14 at 7 p.m.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Canyon Crest Academy Proscenium Theatre, 5951 Village Center Loop Rd., San Diego, 92130.
Scholarship recipients are selected through an application process that evaluates grades, activities, a personal essay and interview.
Scholarship funds are raised through proceeds from the sale of the CCA directory and donations from local businesses, foundations, government agencies, community organizations and individuals.
Several scholarships have been established as memorials. Scholarship sponsors this year include: Del Mar/Solana Beach Rotary Club, Pardee Construction Company, Ed & Eleanor Jacobs Memorial, Adria Horning Literary Arts & Athlete Memorial, Ben Trees Memorial, Dr. Sarita Eastman, Rancho Santa Fe Rotary and Hansen Surfboards.
In 2008, 59 scholarships were awarded to CCA Seniors totaling $36,000.
The mission of Canyon Crest Academy Dollars for Scholars is to reward CCA Seniors for their achievements and future promise with scholarships from the local community.
The funds raised go directly to CCA Seniors to attend a trade school, a two-year college or a four-year college. To establish a scholarship or make a donation to Dollars for Scholars please contact Laurie Doyle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
