Education foundation names scholarship winners
Each year, the Simi Valley Education Foundation grants six students $1,000 scholarships so that they can attend college, technical or vocational schools.
One student is chosen from each of the five local high schools as well as from Moorpark College.
The 2016 scholarship recipients and their schools are: Desiree Hernandez, Apollo; Sarah Chaffin, Monte Vista; Robert Ota, Royal; Andrea Magat, Santa Susana; Allison Gillies, Simi Valley, and Noelle Chodek, Moorpark College.
The 2016 endowment recipients are: Yasmin Alvizo of Apollo, Maria Valdez of Royal and Emma Mills of Santa Susana.
In addition, the foundation awards three, two-year community college scholarships of $1,000 per year to students enrolled in a local community college.
This endowment program was established to honor the wishes of the original donor to provide community college scholarships for students who cannot afford to fund their own education.
