Citizens for Better Community to award scholarships
Submitted By Ivy Wu
The Citizens for Better Community Foundation (CBC) is proud to announce the recipients of 2012 CBC Foundation Scholarships: Ariel Figueroa (American), Kimberly Johnson (John F. Kennedy), Emilio Ruiz (John F. Kennedy), Yicheng Sun (Mission San Jose), Nikki Murray (Robertson) and Kerry Liou (Washington).
CBC Foundation was established by a group of Chinese Americans to bring more awareness and appreciation of their culture to the community. It seeks to inspire the Chinese American population to become more involved and contribute to the community-at-large mainly in the areas of education, health and business.
To support education and to encourage students to go to college, CBC Foundation offers six $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors - one from each of the high schools in Fremont Unified School District. Since there were no applicants from Irvington High School this year, the remaining $1,000 is being awarded to the student with the next highest qualification.
To be eligible, applicants must have an un-weighted high school GPA of 3.0 or above and be admitted to an accredited college. Students need to demonstrate good moral character traits such as Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Courage, Honesty, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance, Trustworthiness, and Gratitude, developed through trials in life.
All recipients have met the criteria and have clearly shown strong moral strength. The scholarship awards were presented at the Fremont Unified School Board general meeting on June 6.
