Eight students win scholarships


raduation time is always fun, and it is so inspirational to watch and hear the students talk about their future goals. The Glendale Kiwanis Club for many years has recognized graduating students and given scholarships to help them reach their next goals. This year, the Kiwanis Club gave eight students each a $2,500 scholarship.


Selecting those students from the many very qualified scholarship applicants was certainly no easy job for the Kiwanis scholarship committee. The committee interviewed and reviewed student scholarship applications from five area high schools and Glendale Community College before making the decision.

The students who received the scholarships are a very impressive and articulate group of young people, beginning with


Thomas Queally V

from Glendale High School who is going to

UC Berkeley

to double major in French and international relations.


Louise Lee and Vhe Zograbyan,

graduates from Hoover High School, have solid plans. Louise plans to attend


to major in biochemistry, and Vhe plans to attend

UC Irvine

to start on the path to become a surgeon/physician.

Lara Kumjian,

a Clark Magnet High School graduate, also plans to attend UC Irvine to major in biology and become a physician in family practice and pediatrics.


Geovany Siguenza

graduated from the Glendale Adventist Academy. He plans to attend Pacific Union College in Loma Linda to major in chemistry, and then go on to medical school.

Melissa Franco and Taleen Guzman

both graduated from Holy Family High School. Melissa plans to attend


Davis to major in chemistry and then go to medical school. Taleen plans to go to


with double majors in landscape architecture and urban planning.

Tigranuki Stepan

and many others.
