The Malibu Woman’s Club recently awarded 12 scholarships to high school seniors.
Aya Yoshida, the club’s senior scholarship chair, described the honorees as “brilliant, talented, generous and handsome” for their scholarship, school participation and community service.
“Selected out of a field of 23 applicants, these young people exhibited excellence in many endeavors. They give us reason to face the future optimistically,” Yoshida continued.
Additionally, 14 fifth grade students from four local elementary schools were given scholarships based on an essay contest. The members of the Malibu Woman’s Club read more than 200 submissions and awarded $150 to the first place winners, and $75 to the second place winner.
The topic this year: “If you have invented a time machine and can travel back to any place and any time you choose to visit, where would you go? Who would you like to meet?”
The winners read their essays to club members, parents, friends, principals and teachers.
