La Mirada~The winners of the 2015-2016 La Mirada Kiwanis Senior Scholarships were honored at the  May 18th breakfast meeting of the club. Each will receive a $1000 award which will be deposited in their student account at the college of their choice.

All of the awardees are senior students at La Mirada High School graduating in 2016.   Dante Gonzales will study Environmental Science at UC Berkeley.  Michael Caplan will seek a career in Law at UCSB.  Vittorio Reynoso-Avila will study for an Engineering Degree at Princeton U.  Tori Pflanzer will study Psychology at Biola University. Madison Friend will attend UC Davis to become a Veterinarian.

In the past few years, Kiwanis has distributed over100 computers which were brought up to standard by Chris Staples, Kiwanian and owner of Advanced Network Consulting. They were distributed to children at Elementary Schools in La Mirada for their home use. Also, children with special needs were thrilled to get 10 IPads for their classroom use.

This year, $5000 was allocated to Middle School teachers who applied for the grants for projects or equipment to benefit students in their classrooms, their MP Rooms or their grade level studies. Teachers from Benton, Los Coyotes and Hutchinson Middle Schools benefitted from this special grant program from Kiwanis.

Kiwanis President, Steve Jones, said, “We are proud of the projects that La Mirada Kiwanis night and morning groups have chosen to fulfill the motto of Kiwanis International “Serving the Children of the World.” These projects have enriched the lives of the children of La Mirada in sports, in schools, in Scout groups, in the arts and more.”
