With summer upon us, a majority of La Cañada’s social and civic organizations have tied up loose ends, installed new officers for the coming club year and wound up their seasons in preparation of “going dark” for the summer. Teachers have been busy too, assigning grades, clearing their classrooms of this year’s projects and saying good-bye to their students.
As is no doubt true in similar communities across our nation, our adult groups share a common goal with our teachers: to help insure the best education possible for our youths. Many organizations hold fundraisers throughout the year and set aside money in order to give a boost — in the form of scholarships — to those who show promise.
Today’s paper carries listings of teens who won scholarships from the La Cañada Thursday Club and from the La Cañada High School PTSA. We’ll keep the “Scholarships” listing going on our Youth pages for any additional information that may come our way, so if your group has also provided educational support but you haven’t yet sent word to the paper, know that we’ll happily accept it and print the names of the young scholars.
