Hemet Education Foundation Supports Local Scholars


Six HUSD students receive scholarship funds

(Supports Local Scholars)

The Hemet Education Foundation (HEF) awarded scholarships to six graduating seniors from high schools in the Hemet Unified School District during recent senior awards presentations held for each school. Each year the HEF awards $5000 scholarships to one graduating senior from each comprehensive high school – Hemet, West Valley, Tahquitz, Hamilton, Western Center — and a $500 scholarship for qualifying seniors at each of the alternative high schools – Alessandro, Helen Hunt Jackson College Prep High School and ASPIRE. According to Ron and Sue Breyer, co-Presidents of the organization, “these scholarships are intended for students with good citizenship, a G.P.A. between 3.0 and 3.9, and who really desire a college education but whose family must shoulder the full responsibility for paying for that education.”

This year’s $5000 scholarship recipients are as follows: Avery Perez, Western Center Academy; Dystany Hodges, Hamilton High School; Paulina Garcia, West Valley High School; Camille Williams, Hemet High School; and Savannah Sawyer, Tahquitz High School. Rashad Bennett from Helen Hunt Jackson College Prep High School received a $500 scholarship. The Hemet Education Foundation is able to provide these scholarships each year with funds earned through their only fundraising program – the “Bucks-a-Month Club” — in which HUSD employees make monthly contributions via payroll deduction.
