Celebrating the 2023 Scholarship Recipients and Scholarship Quilt Winner

The 43 scholarship awardees receiving $2,500 scholarships were celebrated at the CalRTA Div #58 luncheon meeting on June 1. The luncheon attendees enjoyed a very special treat as the graduating seniors introduced themselves and told their inspiring stories and aspirations on the large screen.  A huge thank you goes to Ron Toledo who expertly compiled the individual videos that the students submitted.  If you would like to view the video, click here.

Two scholarship recipients from Kennedy High School, Hector Munoz and Emani Mason, were guest speakers, sharing more about themselves and their journeys.  Hector will be attending UC Berkeley in the fall and Emani will be attending UC Davis.  Congratulations to all!  The awards program is here.

Also at this final meeting of the year, the winning ticket for the 2023 Scholarship Quilt, “Pathways,” was pulled.   Retired El Cerrito High School teacher, Jim Perero, was the lucky winner.  Click here to see the quilt and information about it.
