One needy student per year for perpetuity will receive a $1,000 scholarship for attendance at Mt. San Antonio College. This is due to a $13,334 contribution from the Covina Rotary Club and $6,667 matching funds from the Bernard Osher Foundation.
"We all realize that a fine education is a fundamental need for everyone in today's competitive world," says Dr. Jim Teal, the Covina Rotarian who spearheaded this project. "The benefits of Rotary largess are durable, long lasting, and important to our society."
Lisa Sugimoto, Interim Executive Director of the Mt. San Antonio College Foundation stated that, "This gift makes it possible for one of our needy and deserving students to receive a scholarship that will help them progress to their educational goal. It is a gift of education, and a gift of hope."
