Youth Services Chair, Cynthia Woodruff-Neer, began the program by inviting Condee Seed up to the stage. Condee was the winner of our local 4-Way Test Essay Contest and also was selected as number 1 in the District! In error, Condee was previously given the award for 2nd place but, now that error has been corrected and she was presented with a $100 check.

Cynthia then went onto thank Heidi Santos and Donna Crocker for working with her to determine which students would be offered scholarships. She also thanked Nancy McKarney for doing up the certificates for the students.

CUHS Scholarship Winners Zack (Jack) Acevedo will be attending Cal Poly majoring in Agriculture Business. He hopes one day to set up agriculture programs in poorer countries.

give her a better life and encouraging her to do her best. Haley Zinn will be attending Cal Poly to study Physics and/or Chemistry with an eye on a medical degree.

Leffingwell Scholarship Winners Zachery Dolan will attend Cuesta then transfer to Alan Hancock in pursuit of a

Vocational Services Chair, Laudon Rowen, presented all 6 Leffingwell graduates with Chrome Books so they are better prepared for the road ahead.

Once again, we were so impressed with the students of our local school district. The future looks bright. Thanks to Cynthia and Laudon for organizing this visit from the

students.
