Lam Research honors high school students
Submitted By Ed Rebello
Fremont-based semiconductor equipment maker, Lam Research Corp., has presented five local graduating high school seniors with college scholarships worth $10,000 each, through its charitable-giving fund, the Lam Research Foundation. This marks the eleventh year that Lam Research has presented scholarships to college-bound students from Fremont-area high schools.
The scholarships recognize high-performing and community-involved students who also demonstrate Lam's fundamental corporate core values, such as achievement, honesty, continuous improvement, innovation, and teamwork. The five 2013 Lam Research Core Values Scholarship recipients from the Fremont area are: Carissa Eaker of John F. Kennedy High School, Jocelyn Ha of Mission San Jose High, Moniyka Sachar from Irvington High School, Vivian Tian from American High, and Washington High's Alice Pham.
Each of the five scholarship recipients had grade point averages of 3.75 or higher and has been very involved in community service. "Each one of these students has excelled academically in high school while also exhibiting solid core values as individuals," said Lam Research community relations program manager, Julie Moore. "We hope that this local investment in students will play a role in producing a new generation of creative, skilled and dedicated workers right here in Fremont, and contribute to their long-term success, both professionally and personally."
Applications for the 2014 Lam Research Core Values Scholarship will be available to high school seniors through the career centers at eligible schools, starting at the beginning of the 2014 calendar year.
