Even though it’s still summer time, many graduating high school students are already looking forward to attending the college of their choice in a month or so.  Two students are getting a bit of a boost to attend Ohlone Community College in the form of a $1,000 scholarship each from Fremont Morning Rotary Club. 
James "Luke" Oviatt, graduated from Kennedy high school. He greatly enjoyed playing baseball for Kennedy the last four years. Luke wants to be a teacher or an engineer; teaching runs in the family but engineering looks interesting as well. He plans to use his time at Ohlone College to decide his career path.
Samena Sharifi, graduated from Irvington high school. After Ohlone College, she plans to pursue law at UC Davis or UCLA. Sameena wants to major in Criminal Justice and become a lawyer.
The scholarships were awarded at a virtual Scholarship Awards ceremony on July 16 at Ohlone College.  Both of these excellent students have bright futures ahead of them and our Rotary Club is proud to have had a part in that.
