Fallbrook High seniors awarded funds for college

Nearly two million dollars in scholarships were awarded to seniors of Fallbrook Union High School June 11.

Over 143 students received awards ranging from a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, helping them further their educations.

Scholarships were offered for many different subjects but they all had one thing in common; "they were earned with a lot of hard work from the students," Karen Ricci, Fallbrook Union High School counselor said.

Each year the awards show illuminates outstanding students in the community. Whether going onto a four-year university, vocational school, community college, or the military, they all wish to obtain a higher education.

The local businesses play a large role in helping these students. Ricci said, "I donít think there is an organization in town that has not given money for these scholarships. That just speaks volume about the community."

While the scholarship money awarded was less than previous years, the number of recipients has gone up. The counseling office at FUHS has been speaking in classes, sending emails, and reminding students about applying for these scholarships.

The dedication of FUHS officials helped get more students to apply for financial awards.

Also, "because of the economy, I do think everyone is looking a little bit harder at raising funds for schooling," said Ricci.

The 1.9 million dollars in scholarships does not even include the state or federal need-based scholarships students are also receiving. The awards highlighted during the ceremony are from private organizations and the schools.

The benefactors of these scholarships were able to present their awards on stage to the students. However, most were not meeting the winners for the first time.

"I love giving the awards, but I truly love getting to know the students in the interviews beforehand," said Marilyn Kimbrell, representative for the Philanthropic Education Organization (PEO).

As it is every year, the awards show was a celebration for the students of Fallbrook Union High School who are wonderfully supported by the community.

These scholarships are only those given by local groups, corporate sponsors and the schools themselves; they do not include the state and federal moneys supplied to assist students with higher education. These scholarships total in excess 1.9 million dollars.
