Congratulations to scholarship recipients

Submitted By Catherine Relucio

Eden Housing is proud to present its 20th annual Howard T. Collins Memorial Scholarship Program. Since the program's inception, Eden Housing has awarded more than 250 scholarships totaling $275,000 to deserving lower-income residents. The scholarship program was named in honor of Howard. T. Collins, an active, dedicated member of the Eden Housing Board of Directors who believed in education and opportunity for all.

This year, $50,000 was awarded to 26 Eden Housing residents. Recipients will pursue certificates, undergraduate and graduate degrees at institutions such as Columbia University; Drexel University College of Medicine; University of California at Berkeley, Los Angeles and Davis; University of San Francisco; California State University of Fullerton, Stanislaus and the East Bay; Sonoma State University; and local community colleges.

"We need to bridge the educational gap and prove that our potential, our success, should be measured by what's in our heads and our hearts rather than what's in our parents pockets," said Bill, a scholarship recipient.

The Board, staff and residents of Eden Housing, would like to express their gratitude to all those who make this valuable program possible.
