On Tuesday, May 22, at 6:30 p.m., 48 outstanding Canyon Crest Academy seniors will be recognized by the Dollars for Scholars Committee for their achievement in a broad range of activities and interests throughout their high school career. Scholarships are awarded to students who plan to attend a two- or four-year university or college, vocational or technical school. The awards ceremony will take place at the Canyon Crest Academy Proscenium Theatre, 5951 Village Center Loop Rd., San Diego, 92130.
Scholarship recipients, selected based upon school and community involvement, scholastic achievement and personal commitment, receive awards ranging from $500 to $1,000. These scholarships, totaling $28,000 are being awarded thanks to the efforts of Canyon Crest Academy’s Dollars for Scholars Committee and many generous donors.
Scholarship funds are raised through proceeds from the sale of the CCA directory and donations from local businesses, foundations, community organizations and individuals. Several scholarships have been established as memorials. Scholarship sponsors this year include: Pardee Construction Company Awards, Jacobs Alumni Award, Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Awards, Del Mar/Solana Beach Rotary Awards, Adria Horning Memorial Awards, Dr. Jorge Zapatel Award and Hansen’s Award.
