New Haven Schools Foundation's Scholarship Luncheon

Submitted By Barbara Aro-Valle, Executive Director

James Logan and Conley-Caraballo high school seniors will receive more than $65,000 in college scholarships at the New Haven Schools Foundation's annual Scholarship Luncheon on Friday, April 19. The event will be held at the Hilton Newark/Fremont. Tickets to the luncheon are $75 per person.

The Foundation will distribute 86 scholarships worth a total of $69,850. Union City Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci and Assemblymember Bill Quirk will present the scholarships, and State Treasurer Bill Lockyer will be the honorary guest.

This year marks the largest number of scholarships given out since the Foundation split off from the district in 2007. It is also the most amount of money given out to students. Over the years, the Foundation has awarded approximately $370,000 in scholarships since 2008, the year it resumed the scholarship luncheons.

This is the first year that the Foundation will be honoring those students who have completed over 1,000 hours of community service. They will be given a separate award at the luncheon. In total, district students volunteered over 18, 505 hours in their community.

In addition, the Foundation has several new scholarships:
U. C. Human Relations Commission ($1,000), Shutes and Ladders ($500), Dorothy Lenz Memorial (former Speech Therapist at New Haven Unified) and Lawson/Curry (Both husband and wife are alumnus from Logan) with (two) $5,000 scholarships.

The Pilipino-American Society of Education (P.A.S.E) is awarding 19 scholarships this year. These students will not be attending the luncheon. P.A.S.E. will be honoring their student recipients in a separate event (reception) toward the end of the school year.

As you know, the luncheon is to honor our scholarship recipients but it also is a fundraiser for the foundation to raise money to keep the program going. Tickets to the luncheon are $75 per person. In addition, donations in any amount would be greatly appreciated for this scholarship program. Please consider attending this wonderful and worthwhile fundraising event.
