2012 recipients of Kiwanis of Rolling Hills Estates Scholarships pose with sponsor Jackie Glass

The Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates honored 22 high school seniors and continuing scholars at their dinner and awards ceremony on June 3, 2012. The Los Verdes Golf Course ballroom was the perfect venue for celebration of the recipients’ academic achievement, community service and what the club likes to call “heart.” Parents, significant others and students were congratulated on their past achievements and encouraged to continue their efforts in the future.

Continuing scholars represented: California State University, Long Beach and San Francisco; Georgetown University; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Rice University in Houston; Stanford University; the University of California at Berkeley, San Diego, Santa Cruz; the University of Southern California; and Wake Forest University in North Carolina.
