With High School graduation just a few weeks away, our Rotary Club is proud to award six scholarships to Ohlone College to deserving students of Irvington and Kennedy high schools in Fremont.  Each scholarship is $1,000 for the 2021-2022 fall semester.  Recipients, pictured above with representatives of our Club are, from left to right are: Alexandra Chu, Andrea Medina Baltazar, Christopher Perez, Lin Me, Leslie Gaytan and, Caren Matar (not pictured).  Scholarship candidates were screened and reviewed by our Rotary Club in cooperation with the Ohlone College Foundation.  The scholarship ceremony was unique to say the least.  Because of Covid restrictions, each recipient arrived in separate cars to the stage where they were presented their certificates with a few moments for a photo op.  There was no opportunity to mingle and congratulate them afterward.  However, each student will visit our Club meetings over the summer so we can congratulate them again and learn a little more about their educational and career aspirations.  We can’t wait.
