The San Bernardino Community Scholarship Association is celebrating its 50-year history of helping high school students realize their dreams of attending college.
The association will hold an invitation-only reception on Tuesday, October 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Government Center, located at 385 N. Arrowhead Avenue in San Bernardino.
Over the last five decades, the all-volunteer association has granted countless scholarships to students graduating from the San Bernardino City Unified School District. Every year, the association awards scholarships to deserving students regardless of financial need. Donations come from a variety of sources, from service clubs and high school alumni to local businesses and School District employees.
"This is a great way to help our deserving men and women develop their full potential at a college or university," said Delfina Bryant, a retired District administrator who is the association's president. "I am proud of the fact that for 50 years, the scholarship association has helped local families with the rising costs of a college education."
District Superintendent Dr. Arturo Delgado also praised the association for making a difference in the San Bernardino and Highland communities.
"This is a very unique organization in that it coordinates with and supports local community organizations and individuals in their efforts to help our students achieve their college dreams," Delgado said. "I am thankful that there are people in our community with this kind of commitment to our students."
