Thir teen Deserving San Diego County

Students Receive Scholarships The San Diego Air & Space Museum inspires young people to tackle the challenges of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics academic disciplines, and to make a difference in tomorrow’s world through an innovative, adventurous spirit. To further this goal, the Museum recently selected 13 graduating seniors from San Diego County high schools to receive a total of $ 51,000 in scholarships. These scholarships are awarded annually on behalf of four Museum administered scholarship endowment funds, the Bill Gibbs, Convair Alumni Association, R.A. Rearwin and Jennings Kelly Scarborough funds. The Museum also awards an annual scholarship for an outstanding student pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. To date, 281 talented San Diego County high school seniors have been awarded a total of $810,000 through these scholarships. “Every year we consider David Pepper of St. Augustine High School, many outstanding applicants,” a scholarship recipient, said Katrina Pescador, will attend Dartmouth College. chairman of the Museum’s Scholarship Committee. “I continue to be impressed with these future leaders, and their many accomplishments.” Jim Kidrick, Museum CEO and President commented, “These scholarship programs exemplify our intent to aid deserving students wanting to advance their education–our entire mission is all about inspiring our next greatest generations to excel in their lives.” Each of the scholars submitted an extensive application, listing their academic achievements, their extracurricular and community service activities, several teacher recommendations, and an essay. They were then interviewed by a panel of judges to determine the final winners. The Scholarships included San Diego Air & Space Museum Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Scholar ($4,500), which was awarded to David Pepper of St. Augustine High School in North Park.
