6 Students Awarded Christopher Scholarships

Six students from Los Angeles-area high schools received scholarships Friday worth $16,000 each from the Warren Christopher Fund.

The scholarships were presented to 10th-grade students as an incentive to remain in school, with the assurance that they will receive the money upon graduation to attend a college or university of their choice, organizers said.

At a lunch ceremony at Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters, former Secretary of State Warren Christopher awarded plaques to Claudia Arevalo of Locke High School, Marlon Dominquez of Belmont High, Gladys Felix of Roosevelt High, Rene Garcia of Franklin High, Ilisten Jones of Westchester High and Jeremiah Walker of Jordan High.
