On May 18, six local high school seniors, Alexandra Antonoplis, Kevin Hurlbutt, Nicholas Lupica, Megan Nathan, Daniel O’Leary and Mary Young will be presented as the 2010 recipients of the Christopher A. Burrows Memorial Scholarship.

Each Burrows Scholar will receive a $2,500 scholarship at the Chris Burrows Memorial dinner. The dinner will be held at the home of Cayce and Don Sheppard at 5:30 p.m.; it is preceded in the morning by a round-robin tennis tournament and lunch at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club.

These students were chosen because of their high level of academic and extracurricular achievement, community involvement, strength of character and zest for life.
