May 21, 2014 -- Fourteen students from four middle schools, four high schools and Santa Monica College were recognized at the 2014 Rotary Club of Santa Monica scholarship awards luncheon on Friday.
“The applicant pool was very competitive," said Susan Annett, Rotary Scholarship Committee Co-chair. "It was a welcome challenge to select such deserving students.”
Among those honored was Santa Monica College (SMC) student Maria Garcia Hernandez, who won the $1,000 Nick Holt scholarship, named for a former Rotary Club vice-president.
Aubrey Dondick was given $1,000 in honor of Clyde Smith, a community activist in the Pico Neighborhood who died in 2009, and Mayra Cuellar was awarded $1,000 in honor of Tom Fox, who served as Rotary President from 1955 to 1956
It wasn't just the big kids who got to play, either.
Kyla Walker from John Adams Middle School, Kyle Hadfield of Crossroads Middle School, Anaya Beckles-Banks from New Roads Middle school and Christopher Aguilar from Lincoln Middle School each got a $100 Citizenship Award.
Rotary Club of Santa Monica meets each Friday at 12 p.m. at the Riviera Country Club, 1250 Capri Drive, Pacific Palisades.
