This year’s winners-which included La Mirada high students-received scholarship amounts totally $11,000, with 14 students overall, receiving gifts.
Annually, scholarship amounts are awarded in the amounts of $500 and $1000.
At El Camino, Courtney Morrison and Zaraya Silva each received $1000.
La Mirada High students received their prizes earlier in the week.
For over 30 years, the service club has offered the scholarships. To qualify, students must reside in La Mirada, but can be attending any high school.
