Now in its 12th year, the association’s scholarship program recognizes students who have exemplified outstanding achievements in academics, extracurricular or employment activities and community involvement. The selection committee included representatives from the local business community, area high schools, area colleges and the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors.
“As we mark the 12th year of the Silicon Valley Realtors Scholarship Program, we are very happy we are able to continue assisting the deserving winners as they embark on their college careers,” said Nina Yamaguchi, scholarship chairwoman. “The seniors selected for the SILVAR Scholarship Program are among the cream of the crop. We believe through our scholarship program we can help our local youth achieve their dreams.”
Other local scholarship recipients included Evelyn May Siu of Homestead High, Madelaine Bustos of Gunn High and Julia Howard of Palo Alto High. Thirteen other seniors from high schools on the Peninsula received scholarships as well.
Donations from SILVAR realtors and affiliate members funded the scholarships.
