Scholarships Awarded to Local High School Girls
Alexis Skoczylas from Simi Valley High School and Giuliana Petrocelli from Royal High School receive scholarships from AAUW Simi Valley.
Fourteen 7th grade girls from three middle schools were nominated by their Science and Math teachers. They and their parents attended an information evening where the girls wrote essays, had a chance to meet past Trekkies and were interviewed by Lorraine Erickson, Mary Patch and Judy Galvin.
Because of the generous grant from Edison (thanks Mary!) and donation from Kiwanis, seven girls were chosen to attend the week long Math/Science Program at UCSB in June. The following girls were chosen:
- Jessica Salazar and Brooke Stanley from Sinaloa
- Elisabet Lindskog and Chloe Kleiman from Hillside
- Mohanshika Pandey, Mariam Agina and Kristal Castaneda from Valley View
