[ARCHIVED] Atherton PAL Awards 3 Scholarships

The Atherton Police Activities League (PAL) is a charitable organization (501(c)(3) in Atherton that builds partnerships amongst the community, youth, and the police through support of educational opportunities (scholarships), recreational activities and outreach programs. The PAL works in partnership with the Police Department each year to identify local students that are eligible to apply as high school seniors that attend one of the 3 schools in Atherton. Graduating seniors must meet the following criteria to be eligible for a P.A.L. Scholarship:
? Participate in Sports and/or Community Service;
? Graduating High School Senior attending an Atherton school;
? 3.0 GPA or higher;
? Plan to attend a 4 year University; Junior College or trade school not applicable.
? College- Bound. (Deferred enrollment is not accepted)
The student must attend an Atherton High School but does not have to be an Atherton resident.

This year we had numerous applications and it is our pleasure to congratulate Lauren Chan of Menlo School, Luis Diaz-Vazquez and Natasha Auer of Menlo-Atherton High School, who each received $5,000 college scholarships. Certificates of awards have been presented to each of the schools.

With the generosity of our community, all of the scholarships provided to these local students are the result of donations from Atherton residents. To date, over $130,000 has been given out over the last 16 years.

Thank you to all the students who applied to our scholarship and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
