The Kiwanis Club of Los Altos awarded scholarships to five students who graduated from the Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District last week.
Recipients must attend Los Altos, Mountain View or Alta Vista high school or the Mountain View-Los Altos Adult Education School and plan to continue their education at Foothill or De Anza college.
The club granted scholarship recipients $2,100, $600 more than in previous years, to compensate for rising tuition costs.
The Kiwanis Club presented scholarships to Allan Mariano from the adult education school, Edna Hernandez from Los Altos High and Marc Campanilla from Mountain View High, all of whom will attend Foothill College. Recipients Samantha Boulanger from Mountain View High and Ema Macias from Alta Vista High plan to attend De Anza College.
