This year’s scholarship luncheon was held at the Los Verdes Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes on June 2nd 2019. One hundred and eleven scholars, family, guests, and Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates members attended the event.

This was the twenty first year that the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates gave out scholarships to deserving high school graduates and continuing students. Thanks to our many sponsors twenty six scholarships were given out.

The Kiwanis luncheon is unique in that it not only honors the students but the parents. The scholarships were awarded to deserving students who have shown special “heart” and performed to the best of their ability in high school. The students came from our local South Bay high schools and included Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Peninsula, San Pedro, Phineas Banning, Port of Los Angeles, LAUSD Harbor Teacher Prep Academy, and Mary Star.

Joyce Campbell, Kiwanis member and chairman of the scholarship program presided over the event and gave out three special presentation awards in the name of Jacky Glass, a long time sponsor of the program, In Memory of Connie Sherman, a community supporter and wife of Richard Sherman past president of the Kiwanis, and the Cliff Welsh Youth award.

Richard Sherman presented the scholarship awards on behalf of his wife Connie.

The Keynote speaker for event was Ben Carter, past president and board member. Ben emphasized that the goal of the scholarship program, as well as the other Kiwanis programs, was not just to provide funds but to help the next generation become independent productive citizens and the recognition that by receiving these scholarships they take on the obligation to help those that follow.

Dignitaries at the event included Ken Dyda, RPV City Council and past Mayor and Susan Brooks RPV City Council and past Mayor.

News from Scholarship Recipient

Dr. Joyce Campbell received this from Danielle, a continuing scholar who was selected as 1 of 12 FIDM students this year for a very special international program.


We’re only 1 month into the program, so “family” might be a stretch, but we do see each other a lot and text in the group chats daily! There’s been a certain amount of passive aggression and a struggle for leadership, but we’re doing our best to all get along and work as a team.

So far, the only travel has been field trips in the LA/Hollywood area, and to Texas for a weekend. We will be in Europe in September, while the Denim program will be visiting Japan (I’m jealous). We will have a full schedule of meetings with designers, manufacturers, and contractors, attend Paris Fashion Week and possibly Herbalife Paris 2018 or go to their Paris headquarters. Then, We’ll be in China in January for Hong Kong fashion week, a trade show, and more meetings with suppliers.

That’s cool! I studied some of those practices when I took a color class last year. I’ll keep that in mind haha. I personally love the natural/garment dye look. We have thought about sustainability, but I think we’re going to focus more on innovative finishes, fabric constructions, and versatile design. I’m planning on designing men’s wear-to-work with professional and performance fabrics, inspired by Ministry of Supply and Lawrence Hunt, merchandised for Herbalife Nutrition independent distributors (or partner this year).

Hope all is well! Thanks for thinking of me!
